Abstract

A great deal of concern has been expressed in recent years about the sustainability (environmentally and economically) of the campus landscaping at the University of Waterloo. Landscaping is an extremely contentious issue however, and the multitude of differing opinions have made progress towards an environmentally sustainable campus difficult. This problem is compounded by the lack of specific guidelines for sustainable development in the University's Master Plan.

By identifying key stakeholder issues, and areas in which specific suggestions of alternative landscaping practices may be attempted, this project provides a framework for future groups hoping to create a more comprehensive Master Plan, or a more sustainable campus landscape design.

This project is available for viewing by the UW community.
