Sabrena Schweyer Recipient of Exclusive Professional Designation

Sabrena Schweyer, co-owner of Salsbury-Schweyer, Inc, has been named as a Fellow in the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD). Fellowship is one of the highest honors the APLD bestows on members, acknowledging their outstanding contributions not just to their profession, but to the greater public as well. APLD Fellows must be nominated for this tribute by two certified APLD members and elected by the Board of Directors. In APLD’s twenty-three year history, only fourteen others have received the honor of Fellow.

Ms. Schweyer was particularly recognized for her long-standing environmental commitment, “demonstrating exemplary performance in developing and leading programs that have advanced the practice of sustainable landscape design.”

Ms. Schweyer is an award-winning landscape designer, guest columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and an accomplished speaker on sustainability. An authority on perennials, color and design, Ms. Schweyer’s talent for designing both European and native plant gardens is supported by her broad background in horticulture/permaculture, history and the arts. With more than twenty years experience in a variety of horticultural environments, including the gardens of England's National Trust, she is passionate about connecting people and nature in a way that nurtures both.

Ms. Schweyer was formally inducted as an APLD Fellow September 20th at the APLD International Design Conference in San Francisco. She joins husband and partner Samuel Salsbury in this prestigious status. Mr. Salsbury became an APLD Fellow in 2011.

Salsbury-Schweyer, Inc is an innovative landscape design and development group, acclaimed for its stunning gardens, water features, and environmentally sensitive landscapes. Featured in dozens of articles, books and magazines - including “Fine Gardening”, “The Wall Street Journal” and “The American Gardener” – the firm has received numerous international design awards. Its mission statement is to create beautiful, sustainable outdoor experiences that touch the souls of all those who enter.
