Resources for Landscape Architects

Landscape Architecture Foundation Webinar: Speaking the language of real estate developers


Join LAF and three expert panelists at 4PM ET on Friday, June 28 for a deep dive into the perspectives of real estate developers.

Landscape architects can serve as powerful partners in creating places that generate a high return on investment but often don’t know how to express the value of their work in language compelling to developers. In this webinar, three experts will offer insights on how landscape architects can translate their work and reach their greatest potential.

This course is worth 1.0 LA CES CEU, which may be earned upon completion of a short quiz following the webinar.
