Landscape Guidelines


The intent of the following lists is to provide guidance in making plant choices. It is not a comprehensive list, as some other plants are also appropriate. In making plant selections, consideration must be given to the micro-climate in which they will be planted (sun, shade, naturally dry or moist, etc.), the mature size and growth habit, the design intent, and other environmental conditions.

The Primary Plant Palette which follows lists a broad selection of plants to be considered. Plant Mixes A-L provide detailed planting treatments most appropriate for the various spaces on each campus. These are accompanied by maps illustrating the corresponding landscape zones for each campus.
