Sustainability (47)

Sustainable landscapes create ecologically resilient communities better able to withstand and recover from floods, droughts, wildfires, and other catastrophic events. High-performance landscapes have the capacity to protect and even regenerate natural systems, thereby increasing the ecosystem services they provide. These services are the beneficial functions of healthy ecosystems such as managing stormwater, cleaning air, sequestering carbon, regulating climate, and providing habitat for wildlife. Learn about design and development processes that align with the functions of health ecosystems.
