ensuring that investments made in “Living Assets” do mature and achieve maximized financial performance and aesthetic impact (rather than becoming sources of capital leakage due to poor landscape management).
LandEconics will help to prevent the “Crazy Cycle” described below:
The unfortunate result is that the landscape never thrives, grows, and matures – and more money is spent than would otherwise be the case if the cycle had been avoided by the use of a proper living asset management program.
enabling an analysis to be made of the costs to maintain what is being designed. LandEconics provides the metrics to gauge true sustainability while improving the “bottom line” to both landscape architects and their clients.
The cost to maintain what you design will far exceed the initial capital expenditure for the installation of the landscape. The vast majority of landscape architects are completely unaware on the specific recurring costs associated with maintaining landscapes. LandEconics will calculate those costs, based on the landscape design. You can then make informed design decisions about sustainability and cost effectiveness; thereby demonstrating to your client how your work is improving the client’s financial position by delivering true value. LandEconics will also help you evaluate design alternatives and identify potential ongoing cost savings. LandEconics provides the metrics to gauge true sustainability. If a client cannot afford to maintain the landscape they design, the landscape architect is doing a disservice to both their client and the environment.
LandEconics will enable you to offer new services to your existing clients.
