Workforce Development & Industry Growth

MLP's Workforce Development committee meets regularly to address issues around the industry labor shortage.


Following the “all boats rise with the tide” maxim, MLP has joined forces with NALP and other landscape associations across the country to create one common, digital presence designed to promote the careers opportunities found in the lawn and landscape industry. From exploring career paths and compensation information to straight-talk for parents and an active job board, is a one-stop awareness-building website.

More than 100,000 people visited this site in 2018 and this year promises to be even busier. Be sure to list your job openings for free at Additional resources include the #WhyLandscape campaign via WhyLandscape social medial channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The careers website also offers access to resources to assist with school and community outreach, including printable handouts and infographics, career videos, a toolkit for planning and executing a Landscape Career Day, and more.
