DESIGN EVOLUTION IN LANDSCAPE DRAINAGE
Speaker: John Harte, Lateral Design Studio Why should channel and manhole drainage be purely functional, when the design is just as signiﬁcant as the water collection and controlled dispersal Why shouldn’t they become a major part of your design project For years drainage covers have been unfairly denigrated and placed in less e ective locations so as not to spoil the overall landscape design. However landscapers, architects, public realm design teams and homeowners are identifying the need to return to quality craftsmanship from the Victorian era, and utilise current cutting edge technology. Something that, when well designed, will help lead a new renaissance period in urban street architecture. We will endeavour to stay ahead of the curve by continuing to improve this quality and introduce innovative new landscape products, and we want to share these ideas with you.
