green earth, environmentThe General Services Administration has partnered with the Botanical Research Institute of Texas to study “high-performance landscapes” that can be applied on federal properties.

Sylvia Hernandez, GSA regional administrator for the Greater Southwest region, wrote in a blog post published Tuesday the partnership aims to identify sustainable landscaping options for the agency’s government real estate inventory.

She noted that BRIT will also assist GSA in its search for low-maintenance, environmental-friendly plants that can attract bees and pollinators.
