Ecological restoration is the practice of active human intervention to renew and restore degraded, damaged or destroyed ecosystems and habitats.
Studioverde’s ecological design practitioners led the way with our habitat restoration and creation work starting in the early 1990s. Early on we embraced the integrated team collaboration model to identify synergies and innovations that occur when science meets design. Lisa Cowan, ASLA and her groundbreaking work as a landscape architect in building natural wetland and upland habitat systems were featured in Landscape Architecture Magazine (August, 2015) Return of the Swamp.
Ecological restoration does not have to be expensive to be successful. Well-planned, sustainably designed installations will require less maintenance and management over time. Lisa has 30 years of experience as a landscape architect and ecological restoration designer delivering practical approaches and methodologies that yield results.
Based on proven wetland restoration/creation success, Studioverde was invited as the only landscape architectural firm to participate in the Association of State Wetland Managers’ (ASWM) Wetland Restoration Work Group tasked with identifying critical strategies to improve wetland restoration and creation.
