Often landscape design is correlated with sustainability. Landscapes connect humans directly to natural systems, while providing a setting for different kinds of uses. At the same time, it’s important to ensure that the landscape itself preserve the local ecology, hydrology and biodiversity. For that, landscapes must be viewed as more than just an aesthetic add-on.
This course will introduce you to sustainable landscape design and prepare you to distinguish between favourable and unfavourable landscape practices. Further, you’ll learn how these strategies can be leveraged to optimize green building performance.
If you want to explore landscape strategies that can complement green building design, this course is right for you!
At the end of the course, you’ll be able to chalk out a sustainability plan for landscape design in your LEED project.
