Landscape professionals from around the Northwest contributed to these documents, for cost-effective best practices on any site:

  • Natural Landscaping: Design, Build, Maintain (pdf) – brief guidelines and resources for professionals, from initial landscape design through construction into long-term maintenance.
    Paisajismo natural: Diseño, Construcción, Mantenimiento (pdf) - in Spanish
  • Landscape Maintenance Agreement – short version (doc) and the Landscape Maintenance Standards and Specifications – long version (doc) are written in specification format, for use in contracting for landscape maintenance services, or guiding in-house staff. They can be adapted to fit a variety of sites: commercial properties, schools and institutions, new developments, or homeowners associations. Another similar Example Landscape Management Plan (doc) was developed for use in Seattle Green Factor urban developments.
  • Community-wide Standards for Use in Covenants, Contracts, and Restrictions (doc) – can be incorporated into homeowner association rules to promote healthy, natural practices.
  • Examples include the Greenbridge & Seola Plan (pdf) which shows roles and responsibilities as well as practices, and the High Point Guidelines (pdf).
  • Community Manual from Issaquah Highlands (pdf) – an example of complete guidelines for homeowners on natural lawn and garden care and home maintenance. A briefer, illustrated guide is available in the Natural Yard Care brochure (pdf).
