APLDWA offers monthly programs designed to meet the goals of our chapter and the needs of our members. Programs address issues related to professional growth, design exposure, national certification and business/legislative advocacy. Unique venues and fresh approaches are always sought, and networking is integral to every program.

March APLDWA Event

APLDWA 2017 Symposium:
Quality Construction Begins with Great Design

Monday March 13th, 2017, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
Location: Center for Urban Horticulture - NHS Hall
3501 NE 41st St, Seattle, WA 98105
Phone: (206) 543-8616

“If the devil is in the details, then this talk will be an exorcism! Clear, effective and efficient communication is key to success throughout all design and construction phases, regardless of how early or late in the process. The savvy landscape designer has a concise understanding of what type of documentation is required, at what level of detail and at what time." - Danilo Maffei APLD, PCH.

We begin our day with our APLD President-Elect, Danilo Maffei, APLD, PCH from Philadelphia, who will set the stage for the elements of great design that lead to quality construction.

Danilo will share the benefits of his twenty-one years of design, build and consulting experience in using manual and digital techniques to create quality, concise design documents for residential landscapes.

This power packed day of information has just begun. Water, fire, decks, concrete and steel are a few of the significant elements of landscape design that will be the focus of this year's Symposium. Each presenter will speak on design practices and techniques, materials, optimal work processes, project costs, installation time line considerations and latest industry trends.

Key note speaker- Danilo Maffei

We will then hear from five local industry leaders, who will talk about their specific craft. And how we, as designers, can capitalize on the best design techniques to get the most out their construction.

We will close the day with a brief open panel discussion with local installation contractors and moderated by Danilo.


Water features- John Fulford


Fire- Jim Askervold


Wood Decks- Ron Spiller


Concrete- John Dickinson


Steel- Jim Honold MOD studio

It promises to be one of our best programs of the year...we know you won't want to miss it! Lunch, drinks and light refreshments will be served.
