This comprehensive course enables you to thoughtfully and responsibly plan a landscape enhancing the architecture of your home and reflecting your personality. Learn the basics of site and structure then proceed with analyzing climate and setting. An emphasis on design theory includes color, texture, line, form and function. Plant selection, soil analysis, material selection and ecological responsiveness (resiliency) are also discussed and incorporated into your landscape design. The first Saturday instructional session is in person, the next three are online. Two in-person studio sessions bring concepts to paper as you apply the processes discussed. You will need photographs of your planned garden area and a plat of your property.
