LIAWA is unique with varied types of members. LIAWA represents member companies providing services in landscape designer/ architects, contractors/ installers, horticulturists, suppliers and/or trades. Members are mainly based in the Perth metropolitan region. Members are also based in the SW region of WA and Broome. Members in different regions and metropolitan areas are encouraged to refer businesses to members.
LIAWA publishes a trade magazine, titled shape, twice a year as a way to communicate recommended best practices recommended in the industry. Other projects run with the aims of recommending Best Practices are via Events, Expos, Professional Development workshops. We also update our members via emails on key updates in the landscaping industry.
LIAWA members works and inspirations are show cased in one of the most prestigious Awards of Excellence in the landscaping industry.
LIAWA runs Professional Development workshops that are affordable for members and non-members, plus waterwise programmes sponsored by Water Corporation. Recommended best practices are available to members, so stay ahead in the market by registering for endorsement:
LIAWA members are informed, skilled and highly encouraged to design and install landscapes that are waterwise.
LIAWA is also one of five (5) associations working in alliance with IAL, TGA, Compost WA and NGIWA on the Garden Industry Alliance (GIA) on a Joint Position Statement to save our WA landscape industry and gardens from the threat of water crisis. Our valued member, Josh Bryne, works in his media profile for GIA to lobby government support by negotiating a win-win strategy, to save water and yet keep WA landscape / gardens green. Without everyone in the industry working together as a collective voice, the impacts of water crisis on the landscaping industry may not be understood by Department of Water, Water Corporation or Department of Planning well. Financial support is required to lobby the government and LIAWA will gratefully accept pledges for these initiatives - kindly email us.
