Cultural Landscape Reports
ARG has produced many Cultural Landscape Reports (CLRs) for clients whose goals are to identify the history, significance, and treatment of a cultural landscape for the purposes of documentation and long-term management. The CLR is primarily used as a tool for the maintenance, interpretation, and planning of a cultural landscape, which may be typified as a historic designed landscape, historic vernacular landscape, historic site, or ethnographic landscape. Depending on the client goals, the report typically includes the site’s history; existing conditions, including characteristics and associated features; an analysis and evaluation; a record of past treatment; and treatment recommendations. ARG has successfully completed in-depth CLRs for various public parks, estates, and municipalities across a diverse array of physical landscapes and historic contexts.
