The Canadian Landscape Standard (CLS) is intended for use by anyone who specifies, designs, builds or maintains landscape work. The CLS is a single, authoritative resource for landscape construction projects across Canada. For the first time, there is a national guideline to set the standard of landscape work in every province across the country.
The purpose of this Standard is to document acceptable Canadian landscape construction practices as agreed upon by the CSLA, the CNLA, government authorities and other industry associations. This Standard sets guideline and makes recommendations for all major aspects of the landscape industry. It is intended that the Canadian Landscape Standard will set guidelines for landscape construction projects across Canada. It is intended for use by anyone who specifies landscape work, including landscape architects, landscape designers, municipal parks, planning departments, procurement departments, and allied organizations. It is intended for landscape contractors to support them in the bid process. Furthermore, it supports industry related educational and training programs. Although the standard is not a specification, it will help streamline the specification writing process by referencing one nationally recognized industry standard.
The CSLA and CNLA recognize this Canadian Landscape Standard as the national standard for the landscape industry.
