Class: Ecological Landscape Design

  • This event has passed.

Ecologically sound landscapes are adapted to local environmental conditions and require fewer inputs to achieve success. Learn how to measure, inventory, and analyze a site; then make a conceptual design and planting plan using the “right plant, right place” approach. Broaden your design perspective, increase biodiversity in the landscape with native plants, decrease space dedicated to lawn, and create habitats that benefit insects, birds, and other fauna. This is a six-session class.

Please review the Materials List.

It is recommended that students complete the Native Plants of Spring, Summer, and Fall, and Sustainable Landscape Techniques before enrolling in this course.

An optional project evaluation will be held on March 28, 2019. The snow date for any postponed classes is Thursday, April 4, 2019.
