Details

This low-impact, sustainable landscape design was awarded LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.

A low impact landscape design was developed for the Biobased Technologies Research Facility campus in Fayetteville, Ark. The design utilizes native plants adapted to riparian environments planted in storm water facilities to accommodate fluctuating water levels. Revegetation of disturbed areas with low-water-use grasses and flower species reduced the need for irrigation. Paving materials with high solar reflectance and tree plantings were utilized to combat heat island effect. Plant species native to drier conditions at the tops of hills were installed on the uphill side of a ditch embankment. This landscape design enhances the natural environment surrounding the research facility and was awarded LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council.
