The NJASLA is the NJ Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, a national organization of Landscape Architects, formed in 1899.   There are currently over  17,600 members of the ASLA.  We want our site to help you to learn more about the profession of Landscape Architecture in New Jersey.


The NJASLA works hard to provide local services to NJ member Landscape Architects.  Members are kept up to date on important issues via this website, our monthly newsletter and e-mail announcements.  Every year, our members gather at our annual meeting: a fun, 3-day event full of seminars, continuing education and networking.  The event is attended by close to 600 professionals each year.

Through the efforts of NJASLA, the New Jersey State Legislature adopted new legislation in 2008 to increase the effectiveness of Landscape Architects in providing “quality of life” places and spaces throughout New Jersey and encourage an equal status for Landscape Architects with Architects, Engineers, Planners and Surveyors within the land development process.
