Sustainability How-To Guide Series: Sustainable Landscaping

Landscaping provides many benefits to a facility. Some of the benefits include shading of surrounding buildings, areas for recreation and aesthetic appeal to help make a good first impression of the facility. Sustainable landscaping provides these benefits while balancing environmental, economic and social needs of the facility. The goal of this guide is to help facility managers, and those who work with facility managers, to better understand what sustainable landscaping is and how to apply sustainable landscaping practices.
