LAND MANAGEMENT/GAR CONSULTING
Many planned communities built during the 80’s and 90’s relied heavily on irrigation and selection of aggressive exotic species when making design decisions. Today, homeowners in those communities are more savvy and are engaged to make a positive commitment to their local ecologies. JHLA provides consulting services that “facelift” existing guidelines and make practical and executable recommendations for reducing water demand and the use of pesticides and fertilizers. These recommendations save homeowners money and limits their carbon footprint. JHLA also provides services as a certified landscape expert for Green Area Ratio (GAR) submissions in DC.
JHLA can provide cost estimating for feasibility studies or in order to develop claims for insurance purposes. These services can also prepare a client to develop a timeline for potential projects.
The necessary emphasis on responsible landscape design is never ignored or overlooked. JHLA works with clients on delivering green design solutions on projects of all scopes and size. From minimizing stormwater, to working with gardeners on organic techniques, JHLA’s mission is to respect and restore the surrounding environment whenever possible.
