What is LEED?

The U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the most adopted and recognized measure for green building standards (http://www.usgbc.org).  The USGBC created LEED to emphasize sustainable building practices and to provide a practical tool to measure results for building owners and occupants.  The Growing Company currently maintains several LEED certified properties.  Water usage, chemical applications, and maintenance equipment are monitored closely.   If you have any questions regarding LEED and how it applies to landscape, please contact our Vice President, Anne Sandoval LEED AP.
