I saw a link to this article this morning on Twitter, and was quite interested to learn of you and your work. Your approach is right on target with the Sustainable Sites Initiative.

As we have found, the cost motivation factor can be a significant incentive toward integrative landscape design. When decision-makers begin to understand the significant reductions that can be made to their ongoing operations and maintenance budgets, they begin to listen. This is particularly true when you learn to use "financial-speak" and talk in terms of the "net present value" of dollars invested, and the "internal rate of return" on an investment over the lifecycle of the landscape.
