Botanica Atlanta | Landscape Design, Construction & Maintenance



Landscapedia is a garden reference community for landscape professionals (but can be used by anyone). It is an online exchange of plant information, allowing collaboration on design projects. Landscapedia is also the first mobile plant reference for the Apple iPhone.

Floridata is a photographic encyclopedia of landscape plants, an online plant & nature reference, and a gardening marketplace.






Founded in 1975 by the Cherokee Garden Club under the leadership of Anne C. Carr, the Cherokee Garden Library serves as an active resource center that collects educational and research material in the fields of gardening, landscape design, garden history, horticulture, floral design, botanical art, and ecology, with a specific focus on documenting the Southeastern region.



The mission of the Atlanta Botanical Garden is to develop and maintain plant collections for display, education, research, conservation and enjoyment.


The mission of the Georgia Native Plant Society is to promote the stewardship and conservation of Georgia's native plants and their habitats through education and with the involvement of individuals and organizations.

The purpose of the Georgia Perennial Plant Association is to increase awareness and knowledge of the many fine perennial plants that can enhance our gardens.


The goals of the APLD® are to advance landscape design as an independent profession and to promote the recognition of landscape designers as highly qualified, dedicated professionals.


The Ecological Landscaping Association is a nonprofit, member-based organization of landscape professionals, homeowners, and community groups who believe in using landscape practices that are environmentally safe and beneficial.

The Pesticide Action Network (PAN) works to replace pesticide and herbicide use with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives. PAN's Pesticide Database is your one-stop location for current toxicity and regulatory information for pesticides and herbicides. We at Botanica Atlanta try to use as few pesticides and herbicides as possible. But when we do consider the use of man-made chemicals, we check PAN's database first. Any product that gets their "bad actor" rating is off limits to us.


The Oakhurst Community Garden Project (OCGP) in Decatur Georgia actively engages youth, families, and individuals in their environment, health, and community through organized programs, classes, and events that develop creative skills in sustainable urban living, organic gardening, health and nutrition. The OCGP serves as community garden, nature center, neighborhood meeting space, and wildlife habitat that is open for all to experience the potential of urban greenspace.


Georgia Organics is a member supported non-profit organization working to integrate healthy, sustainable and locally grown food into the lives of all Georgians. Georgia Organics envisions sustainable, organic and local food transforming our communities to be more healthy, secure and economically viable.



Plants For A Future is a resource centre for rare and unusual plants, particularly those which have edible, medicinal or other uses. They practice organic permaculture with emphasis on creating an ecologically sustainable environment based largely on perennial plants.
