LASN just finished a review of the 2,200 Products that have been added to the new LandscapeOnline Product Search Engine (LOPSE) so far this year. Now you can find more than 15,200 different products at! Virtually every one has a direct link to the vendor's website and in most cases a link to the actual product page itself. You can also access the vendor's LandscapeOnline Profile, which shows the full range of products available from each vendor listed. If you haven't tried LOPSE, you should. Everything from water features to lighting, pavers to pergolas, furniture to play structures, and fencing to retaining walls can be found in the search for national manufacturers, PLUS there are more than 3,000 vendors listed in the State-by-State Wholesale and Plant Material search. In July there were more than 11,700 individual product searches and that number continues to Grow . . . Grow . . . Grow !!! Next . . . The 2017 Annual LASN Survey is complete and the results are in . . . Thanks to the more than 330 LASN readers who participated in this year's quest for knowledge! Your input is greatly appreciated! It's good to see that the vast majority (89.83%) of you are actively involved with site design, and that 77.97% of respondants list LASN as their #1 magazine for product information (the closest competitor pulled in less than 15%). Given that LASN's goal is to entertain and educate Landscape Architects and connect them with vendors across the country, it looks like we are doing our job. Of course, LASN will also use the survey to hone in on what you are most interested in. The top three are: 84.18% read LASN for the Feature Articles 54.98% read LASN for the Product Focus 49.15% read LASN for Industry News You can also expect more articles relating these Top 10 categories requested: 1) Innovative Practices Design Techniques 2) Environmental Restoration 3) Horticultural Information 4) Stormwater Management 5) Hardscape Design 6) Parks and Recreation 7) City/Downtown Development 8) Land Planning 9) Sustainablility 10) Design/Build So . . .
