This practicum explores the requirements necessary for the creation of a national standard of plants and living materials. It defines the types of language and documents that are used in the communication between landscape architects, contractors and living material producers/providers. It defines the practical applications of standards in the landscape industry and outlines the process in which two governing organizations worked together to create a national standard with the inclusion of regional supplements. It then outlines the issues surrounding regional specific appendices and provides a local (Manitoba) alternative to the Container Grown Plants section of the National Landscape Standard.
