Green for Life is a program from Landscape Ontario Horticultural Trades Association, a group of green industry businesses working together to promote the joys and benefits of plants and landscapes.

Landscape Ontario members are experts in their fields: landscape contractors, garden retailers, landscape designers and more. Member companies range widely in size and specialty, but all members are united in their appreciation for nature, and their desire to improve quality of life for everyone by making Ontario greener.

This passion goes beyond business. Landscape Ontario members believe in environmental stewardship. Plants form the green industry's foundation, and they create oxygen and cool the Earth — plants are unique in actually improving our environment!
