Designing for Urban Landscapes – NEW!
April 2, 1 – 4 p.m.
A new take on our classic, Small-lot Landscape Design class, this class will discuss a practical approach to designing for your own backyard or other relatively small spaces (an acre or less).
Plants are the characters that provide the drama in our landscapes, and as the designer it’s our task to “cast” these botanical actors in their winning roles. By harnessing the tools of site analysis, list-making, bubble diagrams and designing “on the ground” during this class, anyone can learn to design an urban landscape – no drawing skills required!Register for Single Class Register for Series
