The new Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional Certification Program is working to educate landscape professionals on conservation landscaping, stormwater management, and how to maintain projects for long-term success. One of the study materials is the newly developed, “CBLP Sustainable Landscapes Maintenance Manual” written by Cheryl Corson. This manual provides a condensed review of the most important landscape maintenance considerations. Cheryl was recently interviewed about her experience and the need for this manual.
Cheryl Corson, RLA, ASLA, is a landscape architect and writer in private practice in the greater D.C. metro area. She also instructs landscape architecture licensure candidates in preparing for the design, stormwater management, and construction sections of the LARE exam. Cheryl holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration, and received her master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
The Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) Certification is a new voluntary credential system for professionals who design, install, and maintain sustainable landscapes. The credential training and examination emphasizes stormwater retrofit best practices and conservation landscaping with native plants to benefit the environment.
The initial Pilot of the training and exam for this new CBLP credential begins this autumn 2016, at locations in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. CBLP will offer two levels of training and certification: Level 1 is a baseline credential in design, installation, and maintenance of sustainable landscapes, with emphasis on how to properly maintain stormwater best management practices. Level 2 is an advanced credential for professionals experienced in design or installation of conservation landscapes with emphasis on small, residential-scale stormwater retrofit best practices.
