Building the Ecological Landscape: Materials, Technology, and Design

January 21 @ 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

With the growth of new technologies for permeable pavement, sustainably-sourced materials, and energy-efficient lighting, today’s landscape professional faces new opportunities and new challenges. Join the Ecological Landscape Alliance (ELA) for this symposium to explore ecological approaches to the design and construction of hardscapes. Participants in this symposium will learn how to select new and traditional materials and how to bring them together to create durable and beautiful high-performance landscapes. CEUs are available for this program, please see list below for details.

Through case studies and panel discussions, the symposium will address:

How to select materials and products based on their environmental impacts across their full life-cycle.
How to incorporate new and established permeable pavements in the design, construction, and maintenance of landscapes.
How to use sustainably-sourced and recycled materials in the landscape.
How to use new energy-efficient light sources in the landscape.
How to combine sustainable technologies in an integrated design.
