Auditing & Review Process
Landscape Sustainability Audits (LSA)
Full horticultural auditing related to soil type, plant material and placement, and micro-climate, as well as full water use detailing for existing systems. When complete, the client will receive a long-range plan to enhance the site horticulturally. In the end, when recommendations are followed, soil health will improve, plant material growth will be more sustainable, and water use will be reduced.
Water Management System Audits (WMA)
Water management system auditing related to water use in the landscape. It is similar to the LSA above but with the primary focus being on the overall water use and with a secondary focus on the soil and plants themselves. Results will include a detailed report on the best scenario for water use reduction and a plan for efficient use in the future.
