Climate Change Information for Landscape Architects

Winner of the 2016 CLASS Fund Award

Researchers from the Department of Landscape Architecture and the Department of Environmental Horticulture at the University of Florida are pleased to announce the release of a new website that provides information about climate change for landscape architects, gardeners, and designers. The foundation for this site is a 2016 survey of landscape architects in Florida where information was gathered about climate change perceptions, information needs, and potential adaptation strategies related to different aspects of design and planning. Current literature and resources on climate change and climate-wise design are also shared with the goal of providing actionable and useful information for design professionals. Funding is currently being sought for additional updates to the website to provide more information about specific topics. Please visit the site here: . Comments and additional information relevant to the website are welcome. Please contact the researchers at if you would like more information, or follow our Center on Facebook at
