Do you feel like you could be using social media more effectively to promote yourself and to gain more clients? Are you currently on Houzz, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook? What’s it take to stay current on these sites, and which ones would work best for you? Join us for an information packed presentation from our three social media experts.

In our first session, we welcome Sue Goetz, landscape designer, writer and owner of the Creative Gardener and Urban Garden Company and her daughter Courtney Goetz, social media manager for the Northwest Flower & Garden Show. They will guide us as we explore using social media to promote ourselves and communicate with our clients. They will discuss the differences between social sites such as Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

In our second session, Lindsey Thudin from Houzz will help us discover how we can harness Houzz and integrated technologies to improve business efficiency, reach new prospective clients and streamline communications.

As a participant, you should go away with a better understanding of how to:

  • Streamline communication with your clients throughout a project

APLDWA Annual Design Symposium

Three Secrets Used by Successful Landscape Designers to Cultivate Happy Clients

Monday, January 26, 2015

9:00am to 3:30 pm

Center for Urban Horticulture
3501 NE 41st Street, Seattle, WA 98105




Head back to school for a day with Mary Palmer Dargan, APLD, RLA, as she leads us in an advanced workshop for landscape design professionals. This workshop will provide you with a unique opportunity to focus on one of your own landscape designs right in our APLD classroom.

Mary Palmer is a renowned landscape architect and sought-after lecturer to students, design professionals, and homeowners. She will share with us tricks of the trade learned from her more than 40 years of designing landscapes for private clients from the coast of California to the low country of the Carolinas. She has a sharp eye for detail and a humorous, no nonsense approach to getting things accomplished.

Mary Palmer and her husband Hugh Dargan, RLA, are the award-winning principals of Atlanta-based Dargan Landscape Architects (read more about them at dargan.com). Although our workshop will be lead by Mary Palmer, Hugh will also join in with his unique wit and wisdom. For an introduction to the workshop, check out this video.

The workshop’s agenda:

  • Secrets Used by Successful Landscape Designers
  • “Form Follows Function” then Beautify (View this video for a preview of the first secret, other previews are coming soon!)
  • X-ray vision: Layers for Success
  • Design for the Future: Lifelong Landscape Design
The workshop’s take-aways include how to:
  • Improve functionality using the 4 Part Master Plan
  • Organize & estimate site improvements using an innovative layer system
  • Create a sustainable philosophy using lifelong landscape design principles
Bring to the workshop (all hard copy):
  • Base map at 1/8” of front or rear of project
  • Aerial photograph (Google Maps works great!)
  • Three site photographs at letter size
Cost for this event (includes lunch on site & workbook):
