Sustainable Urban Landscape Information Series (SULIS)

This outstanding site from the University of Minnesota Extension offers a detailed guide to designing, creating, and maintaining sustainable urban landscapes. Aimed at both the public and the horticulture/ landscape industry, the site is composed of four main sections. The first, Design, takes users on a detailed trip through the process of envisioning, planning, and designing landscapes that are cost effective, visually pleasing, and easy on the environment. The next section, Plant Selection, overviews the basics of selecting plants for landscapes and includes an excellent plant selection database. With detailed information and photos of over 1,200 plants, the database is worthy of an annotation in itself. The Implementation section covers preparation, planting, installation, and construction of urban landscapes, with several illustrated how-to projects. The final section, Maintenance, offers a comprehensive guide to lawn care, with additional features on tree, shrub, and plant care planned for the future. A collection of links to related land-grant University and Extension sites rounds out the site.
