Boerner Botanical Gardens, Milwaukee
Steven G. Ziegler will join leading experts in the green industry in an intensive, one-day education session for green industry professionals. Held at the Boerner Botanical Gardens in Milwaukee, and co-hosted by UW Cooperative Extension, this educational event has attracted over 100 participants for the past 30 years. Steve will lead a break-out session addressing multifunctional aspects of residential design.

Last month’s Feature Project, the front entrance renovation of an historic Arts and Crafts home in the University Heights neighborhood, has begun, and the award of Historic Homeowner’s Income Tax Credits will provide the homeowner’s substantial cost savings in implementing the renovations over time. The above photos, left to right, depict the front stoop before and during reconstruction. Next item on the docket is the restoration of damaged brick and new masonry for the re-proportioned front stoop.
Stay tuned for the latest updates on this existing project!
Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer, hands-off or somewhere in between, deciding which experts to bring into your building projects can make a big difference in the end result. Philosophies range from the one-stop-shop design-build to an Integrated Design Process (IDP), and understanding the abilities of available experts helps you to select a team that meets your needs and suits your style. In future newsletters, we will address the capabilities that landscape architects bring, and the range of ways LA’s can assist homeowners, businesses, educational institutions and non-profits, whether renovating or building anew.
