- Design techniques and approaches, principles, pitfalls and roadblocks from design to implementation of successful green infrastructure
- Similarities of historical patterns and designed/ manipulated patterns of hydrology and landscape
- Real-world project examples that cohesively weave together the native landscape and site design
