More public and private owners are demanding buildings and landscapes to meet the current market need for sustainability, to reduce maintenance and promote biodiversity. Traditional plant materials, methods and design are being questioned by more sophisticated clients as LEED gains greater acceptance in today's design and construction market.
Paul O'Hara has been practicing sustainable landscape design and construction for ten years. He will illustrate how to achieve beautiful sustainable landscapes with economy using indigenous native plants and trees.
This talk is sponsored by the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design and the North American Native Plant Society (NANPS).
