Award-winning landscape architecture firm Nelson Byrd Woltz is celebrated for projects that, in addition to their sheer beauty, frequently trigger a cascade of positive ecological benefits: depleted landscapes brought back to life by reintroducing native plant species; the resurgence of local animals; and the restoration of damaged ecosystems made possible through unconventional, cross-disciplinary collaborations with scientists, sociologists, artists, biologists, and others who share their dedication to the stewardship of the land. Nelson Byrd Woltz presents twelve examples of the firm's innovative brand of sustainable design.

Divided into four sections, Garden, Community, Park, and Farm, projects range in scope from residential gardens to a large-scale sheep and cattle station along the coast of New Zealand. They include the recently opened Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA; the Asia Trail at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.; the restoration of the Dell at the University of Virginia; Citygarden in St. Louis, MO; private gardens in New York and Connecticut; and the Medlock Ames vineyards in Sonoma, CA. Each project includes a watercolor plan and a materials and plants list. These unforgettable landscapes are both an open invitation to gather together and a much-needed contribution to the health of our cities, farms, and wildlands.
