How we began
WALDA was incorporated in 2005 by a group of enthusiastic students under the guidance of lecturer Miriam Moore.
The aim was to start a landscape design association that would not only support qualified designers but also maintain and encourage a high standard and professionalism in the industry. This would benefit both our members and also the general garden loving public.
WALDA is dedicated to advancing the profession of landscape design in Western Australia. We encourage our members to adhere to a code of professional standards, to actively participate in continuing education through professional development days and to be current with the developments and trends within the industry.
The association requires its members to pass a rigorous peer review assessment which offers consumers access to qualified and experienced designers. Today, WALDA is recognised as the peak industry body for landscape designers in Western Australia. We are a rapidly growing group of professionals trained to creatively respond to our unique Western Australian climate and conditions.
Choosing a WALDA member is your assurance that you have engaged a landscape professional with a sound understanding of design principles, construction and a comprehensive knowledge of soils and plants.
