Green Roof Research Stalwart
Richard K. Sutton teaches at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in both the landscape design and landscape architecture programs and was the editor of the seminal book Green Roof Ecosystems.
His design consulting includes projects in small communities, residences, and landscape management of native plant communities. Keenly interested in rural landscapes, native ecosystems and visual quality, he combines those in his teaching, research and practice.
Currently he is a certified Green Roof Professional and is developing a short grass prairie model for ultra-thin extensive green roofs. He is also interested in preserving the openness and visual quality of Nebraska’s landscape in the face of impending energy development.
