Sustainable landscape architecture can mean different things to many people, so the best way to describe sustainable landscape architecture is to explain it as a category of sustainable design involving the planning and design of outdoor spaces. It includes ecological, social and economic aspects and challenges the relationships between site factors and how those factors will adapt to change. Understanding these relationships also clarifies how development impacts from one area of a site to another.
When Angelique designs sustainable landscapes, she takes into consideration many factors but focuses on these 3 dimensions: Environmental, Economic and Social.
The photo below can give you an idea of what sustainable landscape architecture is. For example, this roof garden design can improve habitats for fauna and flora, decrease water runoff, save money through retained heat, and be aesthetically pleasing.
Sustainable design is the ‘Key' to our future as healthy ecosystems provide vital goods and services to humans and other organisms, and explains the importance of designing landscapes with the future in mind . There is also a need to provide a healthy, productive, and meaningful life for all members of society, so that the needs of our future generations are not compromised.
