Design for positive climate change

We have a responsibility as leaders, designers, and builders to provide solutions that are both good for the earth and humanity. The Landscape Carbon Calculator will help guide you to design for positive climate change and to more viable solutions.


Solutions oriented

The Calculator provides data so you can see the CO2 impact of your project. It gives you a tool to make adjustments and improvements in real-time. The insights you gain can inform the next steps for making your landscape a net CO2 sink. Start absorbing more CO2 than you emit today.

It Takes A Village

Working together

The calculator gives us a metric and a place to share the results. So let’s share them! The more awareness we gain the better choices people will make. Tell others about the Landscape Carbon Calculator.

“The landscape industry has an amazing new tool to support its participation in the fight against climate change. This tool enables users to evaluate the carbon footprint of alternative design and implementation choices. Cudos, Rick, for the far-reaching vision and transformational work embodied in the Landscape Carbon Calculator.”

Jeff Creque, Carbon Cycle Institute

Our team

We share a belief that climate change is real and it is our responsibility to solve it. Landscape design and construction are part of the problem but can also be a major part of the solution. We can make a change by doing what we love. Nature has intrinsic value and that alone is worth protecting. We have a responsibility to future generations and other species to protect the biosphere and to design for positive climate change. We are leaders in the ecological movement and need to stay at the front.
