    Landscape Trends in New Land Development Code: Challenges and Opportunities for Landscape Architects

    Join us, October 14th, to learn how land development codes change over time. Civil engineering and spatial parameters can take precedence over landscape design in land development. New applications of smart codes, form based codes and waterwise design techniques have lead governmental agencies to a renewed focus on landscape design. Florida is leading the way in smart code application and waterwise design, the role of the landscape architect in preparation of land development codes is even more critical as planners tackle issues of open space definitions, streetscapes and planting details. Landscape Architects can play a critical role in defining landscapes in new or updated land development codes.
