It is said that when designing a residential landscape, the most important step is to put a plan on paper. Developing a master plan saves time and money and is more likely to result in a successful design. A master plan is developed through the 'design process': a step-by-step method that considers the environmental conditions, your desires, and the elements and principles of design. The goal is to organize the features in into an aesthetic, functional, and environmentally sustainable landscape.
Newaukee and OneMKE are partnering to serve as a catalyst for young professionals, engaging a conversation around the desire for a sustainable landscape for the city of Milwaukee, when it comes to having a functional and aesthetically pleasing culture for our diverse city. We will highlight the work and innovation of those who recognize they are working in and on the same landscape as they share with us how they found success in tending to this common plot of land in Milwaukee.
