Sustainable Site Design and Landscape Architecture
april is world landscape architecture month
This month we are celebrating National Landscape Architecture Month in the state in which Frederick Law Olmsted was born. If it was not for FLO we would not have Central Park or the Emerald Necklace nor Beardsley Park or Seaside Park in Connecticut. His influence is nationwide but his first footsteps were taken in Hartford. He was born in 1822 and although much of his career was practiced outside of Connecticut, his design sensibility was formed by his boyhood adventures in the Connecticut landscape. I hope to share more information regarding FLO as the Father of Landscape Architecture whose legacy still lives on in our national outdoor places. So please journey with me in the footsteps of Frederick Law Olmsted.
