To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” The same can be said for this edition of the Landscape Data Manual. The California Landscape Contractors Association published the first Landscape Data Manual in 1972. In 1999, members of the association researched and produced a revised version. Rather than wait another 20 years to update this valuable resource, the association has committed to a process of continual improvement, recognizing that today’s rapid changes in green industry technology and best practices warrant more frequent updates. By registering your Landscape Data Manual, you will be provided with these updates, and more.

Members of the California Landscape Contractors Association who register their Landscape Data Manual purchase will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card.
