LPS Wins Potomac/Maryland ASLA Honor Award

The Potomac and Maryland Chapters of the American Society of Landscape Architects presented LAF with a 2011 Honor Award for Communications for the Landscape Performance Series. Winners were recognized at the 18th Annual Awards Event and Reception held on April 15 in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

The awards were juried by the Alabama ASLA Chaper. Jurors offered the following comments on the LPS:

potomac-md-asla-honor-award-500w        “A wonderful creative, collaborative resource to begin to understand the implications and potential successes, well designed places and landscape can have.”

        “The LPS is a great tool for clients and prospective owners — as well as landscape architects — to use in making decisions about sustainable site development practices, using easily understood, tangible figures to support the claims of LEED and SITES. It’s earned a bookmark in my browser!”

Other award winner include: Michael Vergusen Landscape Architects, Ayers Saint Gross, Maryland National Captial Park and Planning, Mahan Rykiel Associates, Florence Everts Associates, Landscape Architecture Bureau, Graham Landscape Architecture, and Plusen Designs Landscape Architecture.

Congrats to all, and many thanks to the Executive, Banquet, and Awards Committees of the Potomac and Maryland Chapters for organizing a great event!

    How do you become a member of LAF?
    Are their any forums for submission of new and innovative sustainable landscape ideas?

    Looking for a group that may have an interest in our creative rain water harvesting concepts, Living Retaining Walls™ etc.

    Regards,
    Joe Cramer
