Going Green Isn’t Just for Buildings Anymore

Sustainable Sites Initiative – It IS the Missing Link!

The nation’s first rating system for the design, construction and maintenance of sustainable landscapes (with or without buildings) was released for implementation today.  Four years of work from dozens of the country’s leading sustainability experts, scientists and design professionals, as well as public input from hundreds of individuals and dozens of organizations to create this type of “LEED for Landscapes”.

By focusing efforts on the site itself, rather than on buildings, the Guidance and Performance Benchmarks 2009 will revolutionize the manner in which landscapes are evaluated.
