Presenting + Representing Landscape Performance


Congrats to senior landscape design students, who successfully presented their final team work on Landscape Design Scenarios for Water Conservation in the Middle Rockies! Their work was the most data-driven to date, and really drove home the quantity and quality of benefits that result from different design choices.

Since then, Erin Barker received a grant to continue research and refinements for a design booklet for the City of Bozeman on alternatives for residential planting design that saves on outdoor watering. Did you know that around 1/3 of all potable water the City treats is used for outdoor water use?! Single-family properties are responsible for the majority of this outdoor water use. Finally, the course has also spurred a research project on learning and teaching landscape performance with two other Universities.
