THE NATURAL LANDSCAPING ALTERNATIVE:
An Annotated Slide Collection - Slide
Most natural landscaping projects involve a combination of traditional and natural areas. A common technique is to set back the natural landscaped area. Some local regulations require this.
In addition, natural landscaping may be the primary treatment on the less public parts of the site while the more formal entrance areas and areas near the buildings are treated in a more traditional fashion. In contrast, some corporations have reversed this approach, making highly ornamental use of native plants in very prominent locations as a part of their environmental "message" and their championing of innovative landscape design.
