Landscapes can help neighborhoods keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
We know this. Still homeowners, and especially developers, typically don’t maximize on the opportunities provided by strategic tree placement, green roofs and walls and yard vegetation.
The American Society of Landscape Artists is here to help. Using a government grant (you can thank the Endowment for the Arts), the ASLA produced a series of five animations and instructional guides aimed at teachers, students and homeowners who want to learn more about sustainability. The set of videos can be found at the ASLA’s Sustainable Landscapes webpages.
