Our Book



“Plants are placed in designed landscapes to create a certain look or serve specific purposes, or both at the same time. Designers usually have creative reasons for specifying particular plants. Even the most basic design criteria–to provide shade and fill space not covered by pavement–is combined with a creative thought process.”
– Janet Waibel

GESTIÓN DEL PAISAJE SOSTENIBLE  “Las plantas se colocan en paisajes diseñados para crear un cierto aspecto o para propósitos específicos, o ambos al mismo tiempo. Los diseñadores generalmente tienen razones creativas para especificar plantas particulares. Incluso los criterios de diseño más básicos, para proporcionar sombra y espacio de relleno no cubierto por el pavimento, se combinan con un proceso de pensamiento creativo “.
