Sustainable Landscape

Sustainable landscaping is low impact, low maintenance, low resource use and frequently low-cost landscaping that fits each particular site and climate – virtually taking care of itself. The landscape is unique among the construction elements because it involves a living and therefore perishable finished product. A significant part of the built environment is the landscape, not structures.
