About Us

The San Diego Chapter of the California Landscape Contractors Association boasts over 240 members and is one of the state’s largest and most active chapters. Each year, the chapter hosts a number of informative, social and educational meetings which allow members to keep abreast of industry trends, network with their peers and just have some fun. Among the annual activities chapter members enjoy are a kick-off dinner, golf tournament, a local awards program, ballgame outings, educational meetings and a holiday dinner. The chapter also produces a monthly publication (Offshoot), participates at local home, garden and consumer information fairs, hosts the Landscape Industry Certified Test at Cuyamaca College in the spring, and stays involved in local political issues affecting the landscape industry such as water conservation and sustainability.
