In this hands-on workshop participants will be introduced to the process of developing a site design for a residential landscape. This course will be comprised of three sessions, in which we will cover programming, base plans, site analysis, preliminary diagramming, site design development, materials and basic graphic representation. Each session will include a lecture component and a workshop in which each of the participants will go through the stages of developing a design for their site. Participants will need to do some work between classes. This course will be of interest for anyone wanting to address the total design of their site, and not of interest for anyone just wanting a planting plan.

This course is very limited (maximum 12 registrants) by design to offer each participant time with a professional landscape architect to develop a site plan specific to their location. Each class will be 1.5 to 2 hours long.
