ASLA blog launches lively animation showing how to use the landscape to reduce the energy consumed by a typical suburban home
The animation appears on the blog of the American Association of Landscape Architects (ASLA) as part of its online exhibition ‘Designing Our Future: Sustainable Landscapes’.
It shows how basic green technologies like smart tree placement and green roofs and walls can be used to dramatically reduce domestic energy consumption. If placed strategically, trees can cut summertime cooling energy needs by up to 47 percent and wintertime heating needs by up to eight percent.
