About this course:

One of the two required plant material courses; focuses on plants, their communities, and place in the landscape. Instruction focuses on large-scale materials that often influence the landscape architect's overall site composition. This course concentrates on trees, shrubs and companion plant groupings, and planting location as design elements. Participants study plant texture, density, form, color, and other characteristics as articulators of space. Attention is given to cultural, taxonomical, and landscape maintenance idiosyncrasies.
