Historical Landscape Preservation

Historic Landscape Preservation is the process of preserving, conserving, and protecting landscapes, buildings, or other objects of historical significance. Partner’s Landscape Architects strive to identify and document these historic sites and structures before any renovations or other types of disturbances occur at a site. Partner’s site civil and design engineers can then ensure that conceptual plans are built to appropriately accommodate and preserve historical significance.

What are some types of historic landscapes that require preservation?

  • Cultural landscape as a combined work of nature and man over time
  • Gardens and parklands associated with religion or other monumental buildings
  • Relict (or fossil) landscape which is still visible in material form
  • Continuing landscape which is associated with an active traditional way of life
  • Associative cultural landscape which is justified by religious, artistic, or cultural associations of a natural element
