Water Conservation in the Landscape: A Case Study Panel

Presented by

Brent Bucknum, Hyphae Design Laboratory and Urban Biofilter & Janice Nicol, Office of Cheryl Barton

About this talk

This session will showcase the work of two innovative Bay Area design firms and demonstrate water conservation strategies at a range of scales-from broad-level planning and analysis through detailed landscape design and construction. We will look at recently completed projects as case studies for watershed management solutions that are at once beautiful and functional, and provide quantifiable benefits demonstrating water reduction, cost savings, and ecological improvements. Results from original research and prototype testing will be shared. Implementation strategies include stormwater management, plant and material selection, greywater systems, living roofs, water recycling, and irrigation best practices.
