Feel safe knowing that you have employed a registered APL landscaper

Who we are
The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) was formed to help consumers make an informed choice. Established in 1995, the APL, which is a specialist group of the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA), and represents landscapers who have met a required standard of professionalism. Members of the Association are registered with the government endorsed TrustMark scheme and are regularly inspected and agree to follow our Customer Charter. All APL members also hold appropriate insurances and have traded for a minimum of two years.

What we do
The APL provides homeowners with a greater assurance when selecting a landscaper. As a customer, you can feel confident that the APL landscaper you have chosen has met prescribed professional standards. By choosing wisely, you can ensure that you are never caught out by a rogue trader, and the quality and standard of work will remain high at all times. 

"Employing a landscaper to carry out landscaping work at your property can often be a bit hit and miss with homeowners facing a lottery of companies who promise to carry out the work. Consumers can feel confident that by employing an APL landscaper the quality of work will remain high at all times and that a professional standard will be met." Paul Baker – Holland Landscapes
