Green development assessments. Let us assess your plans for a new or redeveloping neighborhood .We help developers and planners green the design and infrastructure of towns and neighborhoods, focusing on issues like stormwater, environmentally-friendly landscapes, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly design, environmental education, and more. We can help achieve neighborhood certifications like those from the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Neighborhood Development, or the Florida Green Building Coalition’s Green Development Standard.
Green building certification. We work as certifying agents for green homebuilding programs such as the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Homes, and the Florida Green Building Coalition’s Green Home Standard. Attaining a third-party green certification adds a premium to the home in the marketplace and helps to confirm that the builder constructed a high-quality home, and that the buyer receives a home that is efficient, long-lasting, and healthy.
Green building assessment. Let us work with you and your design/construction team to create a home that is durable, energy-efficient, and healthy, from the roof down to the landscape. We can assess your building site and architectural drawings, then specify designs and materials that will meet your goals for a better, greener home.
Landscape consultation. Right plant, right place, is the mantra of good landscape design. We can create a recommended plant list specific to your community that will guide designers and homeowners in selecting the right plants based on environmental constraints. We also develop maintenance plans for contractors that help to reduce the use of water and synthetic chemicals, creating landscapes that are safer for people and pets. Our expertise is in the use of native plants and well-adapted others; we also specialize in bringing fruit trees and edible plants into home and town landscapes, showing that landscapes are not only beautiful, but they can feed us as well.
Environmental marketing. Many times creative firms are not savvy in the language of green building and development. The world of green has its own lexicon, so we offer content for your advertising and marketing materials that makes certain your buyers understand the environmental commitment of your project.
