• Sustainable Design

    Reduce your carbon footprint with Cityscapes’ environmentally conscious design and operational practices

Sustainable Design Practices

We set ourselves apart from other vendors not only in our unique plantscape designs but also in reducing our carbon footprint and therefore reducing yours.

  • Collaborate directly with architects and designers to integrate sustainable design solutions from project conception
  • Use native plant species in our permanent exterior planting designs
  • Choose interior plants that require minimal watering
  • Offering ‘Living Art‘ as an alternative to fresh cut flowers
  • Supplement season-appropriate temporary annuals and tropical plants with evergreens and perennials to reduce waste and overall cost
  • Design plantings to require minimal watering
  • Use organic and attractive top dressings and mulches to reduce water loss and decrease watering frequency
  • Design with products from vendors who share similar sustainable practices

Sustainable Operational Practices

Not only does Cityscapes design with sustainability in mind, we also operate day-to-day utilizing these ‘green’ practices and techniques.

  • Install smart irrigation systems with rain sensors to conserve water
  • Utilize similar water sensors on many interior projects with irrigation systems to avoid over-watering
  • Hand-water most interior and exterior plant sites to avoid water loss from irrigation systems
  • Practice proactive maintenance to reduce plant replacements inside and out
  • Horticulturalists use public transportation to get from site to site, reducing our carbon footprint
  • Use IMRI certified organic fertilizers, soil, and preemergant weed killer
  • Are synthetic pesticide-free
  • Reuse or compost all organic materials
  • Clean all interior plants with only soap and water
  • Recycle all paper and cardboard products
  • Recycle all plastic products including plant grow pots and trays

Sub-irrigation systems are used to conserve water and reduce general maintenance needs
