Any successful business transaction requires effective communication. In commercial landscaping, one aspect of transparency is knowing the scope of a project, which means clearly outlining your needs and budget, and then communicating and negotiating with the business you hire to get the job done.

That gap between what you expect and what actually happens (also known as the scope gap), is something you want to avoid.

LEED or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification, is a process that is aimed to promote green building design.

With colder weather on its way, you may be thinking about how to protect landscaping from the bitter cold and elements that winter inevitably brings and prepare for spring ahead of time.

Green roofs aren't a new concept, in fact they can trace their lineage in the United States back to the sod roofed homes that were common on the prairie during the country's westward expansion. But green roofs in their modern incarnation date back to the 1960's. Today, green roofs are divided into two broad categories, extensive and intensive, based on the pounds of vegetation per square foot, as well as the amount of maintenance they require.
