Description
Sustainability in the design world has been a popular buzzword for several years now. But what does it really mean to design with a sustainable approach? When selecting a manufacturer, it is important to choose one that puts sustainability always at the forefront, from the very beginning of the design process, through the material selection and the actual manufacturing process. Sustainability is so much more than an afterthought – it should be the guiding principle in manufacturing. To be a
responsible landscape architect means to educate yourself on sustainable materials and methods, and to select a manufacturer who does the same.
