Water Efficient Landscape Design


Event details


Designinglandscapes with sustainability in mind is no longer a matter of preference butone of meeting jurisdictional requirements. Landscape design professionals canexpect Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to make their current designworkflows easier and help meet the new obligations in water efficient sitedesign. Explore how CAD applications can help create beautiful landscapes thatmaximize water efficiency by incorporating the water needs of proposed plants,designing hydrozones for irrigation, and calculating water budgets. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to quickly define hydrozones that report water needs and areas.
  • Recognize how pre-built MWELO and EPA worksheets can save documentation time. 
  • Understand design strategies used to incorporate non-potable water collection elements.
  • Recognize how water needs data can be appended to reusable plant symbols, which can quickly fulfill MWELO/LEED/SITES-compliant proposed landscape plans.
