This course will introduce the design process for anyone currently in a landscape-related position, or for anyone wishing to design and create their own landscape upgrades. Simple steps and how-to’s will be explored which will include planning, design considerations, plant material, and construction techniques. Participants will be able to work with a specific property of their own, or with a provided sample lot and client. The course will provide in-depth knowledge of the design process, including site evaluation and analysis, design theory, function and spatial delineation, and concept development. Lastly, an understanding of soils and plant material followed by basic construction techniques will be covered. No previous design, drawing/drafting, or CAD experience is required.
