The Living Landscape Function Calculator includes plant databases from across the United States. The tool is free for the first five analyses, but users must register with their email address. Unlimited use of the tool is available to subscribers for $50 per year.

Creating an account and subscribing supports the upgrading of the databases and allows members access to ongoing research. Our Blog and Resource pages will be regularly updated with the ever-expanding network of native plant growers, designers and researchers.


Environmental Metrics Unlimited (EMU) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity, started in October 2017, in association with The Urban Affairs Coalition in Philadelphia.


EMU’s slogan is; “Data to Dirt.” It brings the research and field experience of diverse sources into a website. This will make available easy to use information that will help to guide the creation of ecologically diverse and resilient gardens that support bees and butterflies and enhance food webs to support healthy bird populations.
