About the ALE Program

The Awards for Landscape Excellence (ALE) program recognizes and honors the professions responsible for the design, installation and maintenance of professional quality residential and commercial landscape projects as well as garden centers for the quality of their retail displays. The program not only recognizes and honors these professionals but also provides an online educational arena for landscape professionals to view and learn from winning projects. 

Competition is stringent in the ALE program. A maximum of two Gold, two Silver & two Bronze awards in each category are permitted to be presented each year as well as an unlimited number of Honorable Mentions. Judges have certain criteria they are scoring for in each category. If the judges determine projects have not met the high standards required to receive an award, no award will be presented. Judges have the final decision as to which awards, if any, are presented in each category. Awards are acknowledged on, PLNA e-News,, and any other press the award winners submit press releases to.
