Homeowners Resources

Find a Professional Contractor

Landscapers who are not yet members of NWILA will see that all of the information cited for homeowners and business also applies to you, and that is one reason why you should join this professional organization. Our industry is constantly changing and evolving. What was an accepted practice a few years ago may not be the right way to it today. We still see lots of mistakes being made out there that reflect on our industry as a whole. By working closely with the Purdue Horticulture Extension we are constantly exposed to the newest information available.

Another great reason to join NWILA is that it is an excellent networking resource. Connecting with the many great people who make up our membership is invaluable. There are many, many opportunities to talk with and compare notes with your peers. We all run into the same issues and challenges. You can find out how other companies deal with them at our monthly meetings throughout the Year.
