Climate and Landscaping
With all of the attention on climate change, I started to wonder what potential such a threat would have on the multi billion dollar landscaping industry. Whether or not you subscribe to the theory of Global Warming, it is an issue that is front and center.
Doing some research I ran across a publication by the American Society of Landscape Architects. This group was founded in 1899 and is comprised of over 15,000 US landscape architects that are experts in their field. They describe their mission as “Landscape architects lead the planning, design, and stewardship of healthy, equitable, safe, and resilient environments. The Society’s mission is to advance landscape architecture through advocacy, communication, education, and fellowship”.
Weather conditions by all accounts seem to have changed. There are many wildfires, hurricanes flooding and drought all of which seem to be more frequent. In 2017 the American Society of Landscape Architects created and brought together a group of leading experts in the field of Landscape Architecture. The mission of this group named the “Blue Ribbon Panel on Climate Change and Resilience” was to identify designs that would address climate-smart, resilient and healthy communities. And second to come up with a public policy going forward to guide the mission. The panels policy suggestions included:
- Incentive Based Policies – The committee felt that positive incentives would create a more productive and cooperative approach to community landscape design. They introduced the concept of financial, award based and priority consideration incentives.
- Planning and Benefits – Involvement through joint planning by the agency and community would result in agreed upon quality of life goals.
- Policies should contain the element of equality – The panel policy requires that there be equal involvement and input from all members of the community regardless of ethnic or social status. The ultimate goal of landscape architecture planning is to benefit the entire community.
- Community Engagement – Via surveys and town halls the panel policy is to require full community involvement and input to landscape design.
- Policy Measurements – The Blue Ribbon Panel policy requires routine measurement based on metrics and benchmarks to ensure goals are being met.
- Regional and Local Goal Adherence – With the ultimate goal of landscape design resilience in mind, the panel of experts put in a policy to ensure that both regional and local community goals are met.
