Advocate | Educate | Engage

The National Association of Landscape Professionals' Latino Landscape Network (formerly NHLA) connects Latino landscape professionals from Coast to Coast. We advocate for the nearly 500,000 Latino landscape professionals with elected officials at the State, local, and Federal Levels.

Powered by ECHO, LLN is developing new training and resources to help Latino-owned businesses and employees. The group also provides networking and mentoring opportunities to help empower Latino landscapers. We invite you to connect with the FREE Latino Landscape Network today!

Not because he wanted to leave Mexico behind, but because he knew he could do more in the United States by providing better opportunities for his family. From humble beginnings doing landscaping in Chicago with his own brothers, Ruben Sr. broke off and founded the Diaz Group as a business with his sons. Ruben's story is truly one that was Made in America.

The Latino Landscape Network at NALP grew out of the National Hispanic Landscape Alliance, founded in 2011 to empower the community of more than 500,000 Hispanic-Americans employed in the landscape industry in the United States. In April of 2020, NHLA became part of the National Association of Landscape Professionals, ensuring a strong voice in the industry’s national trade organization and building a broader national coalition to support this critical sector of the industry.

In the fall of 2020, NHLA became the Latino Landscape Network which is managed by an Advisory Board of former NHLA Board of Directors members. The Latino Landscape Network invites all Hispanic landscape employees, company owners, and managers to join the community and get involved in the Network.
