AbstractWidespread rehabilitation of historic residential properties in Tucson, Arizona offers numerous benefits to the community. The Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Property provides the best practical guidelines for the rehabilitation of historic landscapes, currently. However, interpreting national guidelines for use on local projects is necessary before widespread application can occur. Accordingly, the first section of this work addresses means by which the national standards might be applied to landscape rehabilitation of residential properties in Tucson, including mid to small-scale residences and historic houses of more recent construction. Because these homes often lack traditional sources of documentation, expanding research options within the design process is often necessary. The second part of this work utilizes suggested research options, including academic and non-academic sources, to synthesize information regarding local historic residential landscape practices useful in interpretive and design processes of historic landscape rehabilitation projects.
