Latino Landscape Network

The National Association of Landscape Professionals' Latino Landscape Network connects landscape professionals from Coast to Coast. LLN grew out of the National Hispanic Landscape Alliance, which was 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 NALP, ensuring a strong voice for Hispanic landscapers in the industry’s national trade organization.

Powered by ECHO, LLN is developing new training resources, networking and mentoring opportunities to help Latino-owned businesses and employees. LLN invites all Hispanic landscape employees, company owners, and managers to join the community and get involved in the Network. Sign up today!
