Best practices and performance goals for the design, construction and maintenance of sustainable landscapes.
President Obama’s Executive Order 13514 provides a unique opportunity for Federal agencies and facilities to improve sustainability across their operations. The Executive Order, in addition to its call for agencies to implement sustainable practices when constructing and operating high performance Federal buildings, establishes goals for the conservation of water resources on Federal facilities including potable, industrial, landscaping, and agricultural water. The Executive Order also calls for pollution prevention through a variety of landscape management practices.
