Landscape Design 101 | In-person class
March 30, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Learn the tools and concepts to confidently plan your outdoor space and develop it into your own personal sanctuary. This class will give an overview of the process of residential landscape design and demonstrate some different tools used to create a landscape plan for your home including overlays to identify how will use the space you have, consider tweaks to make maintenance easier, effectively enhance or camouflage views, and how to align plant selections with purpose. Following the presentation, participants can begin a functional diagram and/or concept plan for one area they want to design under expert guidance. If you wish to participate in the workshop, be sure to bring an 11x17" plat or printout of the property from Google Maps.
