Revegetating With Native Plants

Revegetating With Native Plants

Field experience has made it clear that if one is to be successful growing native plant communities, a functional microbial community is imperative. Use of native seeds in revegetation follows the current societal focus on multiple use of lands, a policy toward enhancing ecosystem diversity and function, and conservation of

Easing the Regulatory Burden

To some, the EPA’s final rule on construction-and-development (C&D) effluent limitations guidelines might appear to be a case of costly, overly burdensome regulation. But landscape designers and permitting authorities would do well to recognize that familiarity with specifics of the new rule means that it need not be so burdensome
