green earth, environmentThe General Services Administration has partnered with the Botanical Research Institute of Texas to study “high-performance landscapes” that can be applied on federal properties.

Sylvia Hernandez, GSA regional administrator for the Greater Southwest region, wrote in a blog post published Tuesday the partnership aims to identify sustainable landscaping options for the agency’s government real estate inventory.
