When Ruben Diaz Sr. immigrated from Durango, Mexico in the 1970s, he was seeking a new life. 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.

Evolution

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.
