Components Of Sustainable Landscape Plans
Identify architectural features
Perform and conduct a proper site analysis
Examine storm water flow paths, high impact areas and low lying depressions
Map compass points to evaluate heat and light index’s
Engage action plan (proposed design, development and management protocols)
Perform laboratory analysis for soil and water
Make special notes of any erosion, point source pollution etc...
Use photo documentation, topographic surveys, sketches and recorded/written observations to determine the overall health of the landscape environment and its connection/relationship in buildings and infrastructure.
