Edamarie Mattei, owner of landscape firm Backyard Bounty in Silver Spring, Maryland, has followed a storied career path, and landscape architecture was not always a part of it. After graduating from Georgetown University, she became a 9th grade English teacher in New York City’s South Bronx. She then went on to be a teacher trainer, where she taught in Montgomery County, Maryland, as well as in California. It was in California where she developed a passion for gardening that led her back to school to study landscape design and horticulture.

Does Marionette intimidate you? Alan Woodwell, architectural designer at Playoust Churcher Architects, offers helpful insight in his recent AECbytes article, “The Many Marvels of Marionette and How to Make the Most of It.” Marionette is one of Vectorworks software’s smartest tools because it allows users to speed up their design workflows and simplify repetitive tasks, leading to impressive finished products. When Marionette made it’s debut, AECbytes Editor Lachmi Khemlani, Ph.D., commented: “From what I saw, Marionette seemed fascinating, and I would have to rate it as the ‘coolest’ feature I saw at this year’s AIA.”
Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) wasn't the only notable site being tended to during this year’s Renewal & Remembrance event. Located next to the Armed Forces Retirement Home, in Washington, D.C., lies the United States Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Home National Cemetery, one of the oldest national cemeteries in the country. These ancient grounds are well-known for being a resting place for many Civil War veterans, as well as 14,000 other late soldiers. As a result, maintaining these grounds is an important undertaking, which is why the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) was asked to include this cemetery in its annual Renewal & Remembrance event.

A monumental milestone was celebrated at the Canadian National Vimy Memorial in France this spring. On April 9, 2017, a large commemoration was held in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Vimy Ridge battle at the memorial and attended by heads of state and British royalty. The battle of Vimy Ridge was a military engagement fought primarily as part of the Battle of Arras, in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, during the First World War.
