Sustainable Landscapes and
New urbanism or true smart growth provides many
opportunities to reduce our ecological footprint through lifestyle changes
and evolution of built form. Eco-village and solar home projects include
design elements of a new 'solar landscape'. This innovative landscape
style incorporates integrated site planning, enhanced storm water
management, water, energy and resource use and reuse systems and waste
treatment using biological processes, with protection of biodiversity and
cultural resources, four-season organic food production and many other
Property Environmental Management
and Land Stewardship, Trails
Integrated land management solutions are based on a
host of environmental, social and economic considerations, which include
sustainable forestry, reforestation, trail systems, education and research
opportunities, organic agriculture, permaculture design, ecological
restoration, protection of species at risk, soil erosion and sedimentation
control, view and vista management, naturalization and fine landscape
Civil Engineering Project Support
Mr. Peterson serves on multi-disciplinary architectural
and engineering consulting teams that provide a variety of environmental,
facility development, project approval, and construction administration
services for government agencies, municipalities, and the private sector.
In addition to providing input on grading, drainage, environmental design
and landscape design, Brad manages projects and co-ordinates input of
associates from a variety of specialized disciplines. Highways and organic
farms are a specialty.
Visioning, Landscape Planning and Design, Research,
Design facilitation and visioning exercises precede
landscape master planning and site design. This process results in an
integration of environmental protection and landscape design with
architecture, circulation, and servicing infrastructure. Organic
land-based production systems are optional. Research, report preparation,
mapping and CAD-based drafting services are provided.
projects often allow for distinctly unique and creative design
opportunities. Scale of these projects vary from condominium
balconies to standard residential lots, to large acreage estates.
Sustainable landscape elements such as xeriscape, low-maintenance
borders, herbal lawns, edible landscapes and water reuse features can
make residential landscapes more interesting, energy and
resource-use efficient, and ecologically friendly.
