Tolerant and Sustainable Plant Selections
The plant selections need to be tolerant of some of the worst growing conditions. Drought and salt tolerance are two of the most common. Sustainable selections will provide food for local wildlife and benefit the native ecosystem.
These projects are often bid on by multiple contractors, so it is important that the plans are well organized and detailed to allow the budgeting process to proceed as smoothly as possible. My relationship with many of the local landscaping companies gives me access to get accurate budgets efficiently.
Providing unique material choices and applications to resolve site challenges and meet LEED requirements are also important. My background in hardscape materials has given me a wide range of exposure to what is available locally and how it can be used successfully.
Design Review Boards
Landscape plans are often necessary for a project to be approved by local, state and federal review boards. By applying careful attention to the requirements I can provide plans in a timely fashion to assist in the approval process.
