About this course:

Every landscape speaks in a different voice. The residential designer must hear what is said and marry the needs of the landscape to the desires of the client. This course focuses on how to develop and produce ideas as you experience the space and create a magical feeling in your residential design. The emphasis is on process through overlay studies, rather than working drawings or presentation graphics, resulting in a final design sketch.
