Silver Award from the National Association of Landscape Professionals

M.J. Design Associates is proud to announce it has been awarded an Award of Excellence—Silver Award by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP).

NALP represents an industry of approximately one million landscape, lawn care, irrigation, and tree care professionals. Through national advocacy campaigns, the association is growing the industry and its workforce. NALP offers its members professional development through education, networking, and training—while also increasing the professionalism of the industry through certification and accreditation programs.

We have been working with a client in Jerome Village since 2016 and what a transformation this yard has endured in the last four years! The back yard was a blank canvas, which allowed us to design it to its full potential and by staying within the clients’ budget.


This project included everything from a new two-tiered concrete patio, year-round seasonal interest in the perennial gardens, custom made fire feature, handcrafted trellis (featuring a family heirloom swing), and a brand-new irrigation system. The home backs up to a main road into the development, but it’s separated by a natural retention area to provide ample screening while entertaining in the backyard. Our goal was to blend the natural elements of the surroundings into the new landscape beds and outdoor living and entertainment space.


Each year, the National Association Landscape Professionals Awards of Excellence recognizes exceptional landscape, lawn care, and interior plantscape design projects from around the nation. This year award was received for Exterior Design Build project $25,000 - $100,000.
