Best Management Practices
In January 1998, Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) convened a group of in-house experts in landscape maintenance, horticulture, and urban forestry to develop best management practices (BMPs) for landscape maintenance operations. This project was undertaken at the request of the Superintendent of Parks and Recreation as part of the City of Seattles Environmental Management Program. Newly revised in 2005, this document consists of nine chapters and provides insights, guidance, regulatory information, applicable policies, and management practices for landscapes within City of Seattles park system.
In this manual, BMPs are defined as a clear and consistent set of directions to SPR staff for the management and maintenance of landscaped and natural parkland, and the individual assets contained within those areas. Resource areas identified within Seattle parks include landscaped, horticultural, and urban forest landscape types. SPR, through its staff, is charged with responsibility as primary steward of these vast and valuable resources.
