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 have been working in this field since the 1990s. We are considered leaders in this movement which is just now recognizing the synergies and innovations that occur when science meets design. Lisa Cowan, ASLA and her groundbreaking approach to building natural wetland systems were featured in Landscape Architecture Magazine (August, 2015) Return of the Swamp.
Ecological restoration does not have to be expensive to be successful. As a matter of fact, well-planned, sustainably designed installations are more likely to require less maintenance 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.
