Weber + Thompson
A Weber + Thompson-designed neighborhood with a channeled stream that is day-lighted and trickles over local rocks and native plants.

In this special section of the Daily Journal of Commerce, we consider the economic value of trees, parks and open spaces; cross mountains and rivers to get to the Puget Sound; and create healing gardens to enhance peoples' day to day lives. We also look at a comprehensive approach to design and collaborative site planning. Finally, we ask local landscape architecture firms how they manage to hold their own in a slow economy.
