Green Landscaping & Site Design

Sustainability is a whole systems approach to manage resources, conserve energy, and reduce waste. Eco-smart landscaping is one component of green design. While typically thought of as an aesthetic feature, landscaping and site design can have direct benefits to surrounding  buildings, by conserving and capturing storm-water and shading buildings, which lowers cooling costs.
