The Community Design Assistance Center (CDAC) recognizes the need to incorporate detailed stewardship plans with conceptual design work. A project cannot achieve long term success without a strategy for proper planting, care, and maintenance. The information in this document describes strategies for CDAC design concepts that have been implemented. Such stewardship includes general landscape maintenance, tree and planting care, controlling nonnative and invasive plant species, pests, disease control, habitats, streetscapes, and parks.

One of the greatest and most satisfying aspects of landscape design is its ever changing and transformative nature over time. CDAC is committed to providing communities with sustainable designs and the continued success of our work over time is ensured through the environmental stewardship practices described in this document. CDAC aims to provide resilient and sustainable design solutions that can grow and evolve for the benefit of future generations. After projects developed by CDAC are implemented and installed, it is our hope that this stewardship plan will help each community we assist be successful stewards of their respective conceptual designs.
