The ILCA creates a network for both consumers and professionals to connect with the right people. The ILCA holds high standards for the professionals in their network, as shown by the annual landscaping awards they distribute each year. By providing these accolades, as well as membership paraphernalia, consumers know quickly which landscapers they can trust ( a much larger issue within this industry ).
In addition to connecting with consumers, landscape professionals can connect with other industry specialists that can assist or supply them with quality and timely materials. These internal supplier connections create a healthy supply chain of good and services to the downstream professional, increasing his quality and speed. Ultimately, the ILCA is lifting up the entire landscaping industry by showcasing their vetted professional network.
