This comprehensive three-session course for home gardeners offers a sound foundation in design styles and process, the importance of sustainability and how to model a garden after patterns in nature. Students will devise a base/plot plan, implementing knowledge of hardscape materials, irrigation, soils and more. Prior to the class, students will complete a preliminary questionnaire and warm-up exercise for their site. In addition, students are asked to bring photos of their site and a baggie of the site’s soil to the first day of class.

COURSE PREREQUISITE: Our Right Plant, Right Place class. This class must be taken before the start of the design course.

We require that all attendees follow CDC health and safety guidelines. Unvaccinated individuals must wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times.
