Swaner Eco Center; Park City, UT

Working on a team with CRSA, VODA staff designed the low water-use landscape for this cutting edge project. This LEED Platinum certified facility is located on previously developed land adjacent to a restored wetland complex and nature preserve. All plantings used on the site are native and require little to no water. Rainwater is collected in above ground and below ground cisterns and no potable water is used in the maintenance of the landscape. Boardwalks are constructed from recycled material and pervious paving facilitates stormwater infiltration.
