“Landscape with a Calm” 1650 Nicolas Poussin



“What is beautiful is good,

and who is good will soon also be beautiful.”

– Sappho (died 610 B.C.) Greek lyric poet

We walk through literature that govern  the safety and sustainability of the exterior environment of school district physical assets and the spaces between multi-building college and university campuses.   Unlike the titles for building interiors, which are known to most design professionals and contractors, the standards for grounds and landscaping are widely scattered; many of them occupational safety related.

During the winter months in the northern hemisphere we include snow and ice management; while covering summer month technologies for southern hemisphere (and vice-versa).  Snowfalls in the southern hemisphere are mainly contained to the highlands and mountain ranges, which are almost exculusively in Victoria and Southern New South Wales, as well as the mountains in Tasmania.   Winter does not pose as much of a cost burden to education facilities in the southern hemisphere as it does in the northern hemisphere.

We also track titles about reclamation of building roofs for permeable surfaces and gardens.
