EM 9107, Ecological Design of Urban Landscapes: Economic, Social and Ecological Benefits
Signe Danler, Gail Langelloto-Rhodaback
New. An ecological approach to landscape design incorporates natural systems as an integral part of urban landscapes. It differs from conventional landscaping in that buildings, hardscape, and landscape are planned as a unified whole, utilizing native plants and green infrastructure to provide ecological, economic, and social benefits. This publication explores innovative ways of looking at landscape design, and bringing ecology and design together to form a sustainable urban landscape.
