As the term “sustainable” has become part of our vernacular—major corporations and individuals alike are trying to figure out what it means and how they can alter their everyday habits and operations to be more sustainable. “There has been a lot of focus on reducing our carbon footprint, and now water is also at the forefront of the sustainability movement,” says Meredith Harris, P.E., Principal Engineer at Roux Associates.
Meredith worked with ScottsMiracle-Gro and other landscape experts at the University of Florida, Gainesville in developing a vision for creating Water Positive™ Landscapes. The ScottsMiracle-Gro Water Positive™ Landscapes initiative provides education, innovative products, and strategic partnerships to support water conservation and improved water quality. The initiative extends to protecting the Great Lakes, Long Island Sound, Chesapeake Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, coastal Florida, and coastal California, among others.
