Give yourself a competitive edge by being a part of ReScape’s dynamic approach to designing healthy, sustainable landscapes! This three-session training program is taught by leading experts in stormwater infrastructure, soil health, irrigation, plant selection and integrated pest management, providing a comprehensive education in environmentally responsible strategies for landscape design, construction and maintenance. This training is intended for landscape architects, designers and contractors working primarily on public, institutional and commercial work.


ReScape California is a non-profit organization that educates and advocates for a sustainable approach to landscaping that works in harmony with the natural environment and encourages behavior changes that lessen the impact of conventional landscape practices on the local environment.


ReScape’s landscaping practices are based on 8 regenerative principles which foster soil health, sequester carbon, conserve water and protect valuable resources while reducing waste and preventing pollution in our communities and watersheds. The 8 regenerative landscaping principles are expressed in local ReScape policies and ordinances in Alameda County, and the Cities of San Francisco, Campbell, and San Jose.


Previously known as our “ReScape” Landscape Design Training and Qualification Program, ReScape California is introducing a refreshed training design for our “ReScape” Landscape Design Qualification Training (DQT), that addresses climate change issues and offers the most up to date science-based information on today’s most crucial landscape topics – firescaping, soil health, stormwater management techniques, carbon sequestration, Model Water Efficient Ordinance compliance, and more.

To become a ReScape Qualified Professional, program participants must attend all three classes, and complete and pass the final exam. CEUS available – more details coming soon.


The course provides landscape design professionals with:

  • An understanding of ReScape’s ecologically based, comprehensive approach to the design of landscapes
  • Technical information and resources to create ReScape plans, specifications and details
  • Interactive experiences with practical, effective techniques such as sheet mulching to remove turf or control weeds
  • Information on ReScape’s tools and resources
  • A competitive advantage in the professional landscape design marketplace
  • A certificate of qualification

Please read the ReScape California Training & Qualification Program Policies prior to registering for the course.
