Landscape Performance Series

The Landscape Performance Series is an online interactive set of resources to show value and provide tools for designers, agencies and advocates to evaluate performance and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions.

The Landscape Performance Series (LPS) is designed to fill a critical gap in the marketplace and make the concept of “Landscape Performance” and its contribution to sustainability as well known as “Building Performance” is today. The LPS is not a rating system, but rather a hub that brings together information and innovations from research, professional practice and student work in the form of:

  • Case Study Briefs
  • Benefits Toolkit
  • Fast Fact Library
  • Scholarly Works

With your input and participation, the resources of the LPS will grow over time, increasing our collective knowledge and capacity to achieve sustainability.
