Historical Restoration Of The Usu Passive Recreation Garden, Jeremy Nelson 2010 Utah State University

Historical Restoration Of The Usu Passive Recreation Garden, Jeremy Nelson

Browse All Undergraduate research

Laval Morris was the founder of the Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning department at USU. He is an important figure in the history of our university, state, and intermountain region. One of the last remaining landscapes that he designed for the university is USU's Passive Recreation Garden. Over time the garden has become degraded, overrun by invasive plants and by last year, had become almost completely destroyed. It is important to preserve and restore this garden because of its importance to Laval and to LAEP's history.


Ecological Engineering In A New Town Development: Drainagedesign In The Woodlands, Texas, Bo Yang, M H. Li 2010 Utah State University

Ecological Engineering In A New Town Development: Drainagedesign In The Woodlands, Texas, Bo Yang, M H. Li

Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning Faculty Publications

This paper presents a comparative study of two different drainage designs in a 10,930-ha new town development of The Woodlands, Texas. Open surface drainage by shallow grassed swales was used in the first two subdivisions that were developed with ecological approaches. Open surface drainage mimics the natural flow regime and is regarded to mitigate development impacts on watershed. In other later subdivisions, the drainage design shifted back to a conventional stormwater drainage system, that is, curb and gutter, drop inlet, and underground piping, known to concentrate stormwater and lead to downstream flooding. The objective of this study is to ...


Laurel Community Farmstand, Terje Johansen 2010 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Laurel Community Farmstand, Terje Johansen

Horticulture and Crop Science

The project was for us to come up with a temporary farmstand that would be set up to sell fruits and vegetables but mainly to draw people to the area to bring awareness that there were plans to build a development at that location. Our group, Dana Curtice, Robert Vasilieff and Terje Johansen met with the developers three times. New ideas and information were presented in the first two meetings. The third meeting was to present our final design.


Strengthening Urban Green: Using Green Infrastructure For Biodiversity Improvement In Boston's Highly Fragmented Urban Environments, Christopher L. Mantle 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Strengthening Urban Green: Using Green Infrastructure For Biodiversity Improvement In Boston's Highly Fragmented Urban Environments, Christopher L. Mantle

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

Increasing recognition of the worlds' expanding population and current global rural-to-urban migration necessitates a better understanding and integration of urban ecological process into the framework for urban design (Sandström, 2006). Incorporating ecological processes such as resilience and dispersal into urban design requires special attention be paid to green infrastructure for the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. In addition, biodiversity improvement promotes related ecosystem services (Opdam et al., 2006) and advocates biodiversity conservation and strengthening as a key part of the development of sustainable urban landscapes.

This research developed a replicable and broadly applicable method for determining the ability of green ...


Slave Landscapes Of The Carolina Low Country: What The Documents Reveal, Elizabeth Brabec 2009 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Slave Landscapes Of The Carolina Low Country: What The Documents Reveal, Elizabeth Brabec

Elizabeth Brabec

Although much has been written about slave life in the antebellum south, comparatively little is understood about the physical setting of slave communities and their day-to-day life. Due to the lack of written documentation and few sketches, paintings or other images, the documentation of the physical setting of slave life is more difficult to compile than that of the plantation owners or even indentured servants. By completing a structured analysis of existing documentary evidence for a specific region of the South, the low country of South Carolina, the myths and realities of slave life in this region can be clarified ...


Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts: Illustrated Conservation & Development Strategies For Creating Healthy, Prosperous Communities, Theodore S. Eisenman, Jeffrey Anzevino, Steve Rosenberg, Sacha Spector 2009 Scenic Hudson

Revitalizing Hudson Riverfronts: Illustrated Conservation & Development Strategies For Creating Healthy, Prosperous Communities, Theodore S. Eisenman, Jeffrey Anzevino, Steve Rosenberg, Sacha Spector

Theodore S. Eisenman

The principles in this guide were initially developed by Scenic Hudson and have been refined and illustrated with a grant from the New York State Department of State Office of Coastal, Local Government and Community Sustainability administered through the City of Kingston. An advisory committee (listed in the Acknowledgements page) provided valuable input in development of the document. We are grateful to all these parties for their help.


Sensory Gardens: Assessing Their Design And Use, Hazreena Hussein 2009 Universiti Malaya

Sensory Gardens: Assessing Their Design And Use, Hazreena Hussein

Hazreena Hussein

This article investigates the design and use of sensory gardens by evaluating their zones and how they are utilized. Preliminary site studies were undertaken in 14 sensory gardens around the UK, followed by more detailed data collection at two case-study sites. The aim was to discover features that enable user behaviours and use of spaces in sensory gardens. The data collection included interview, observation and behaviour mapping, which is used in conjunction with affordance theory. The findings from the data analysis also draw on Moore and Cosco’s multi-method approach.
