Do you dream of creating a unique and beautiful garden and want the knowledge and skills to bring your vision to life? This is your opportunity to learn the basics of landscape design so you can create a secluded retreat, a spectacle to delight passers-by, or a lovely garden with an abundance of vegetables. Over the course of three sessions, you will explore key garden design principles, apply the principals through in-class exercises, and collaborate with the instructor to design your garden. Learn about site analysis, design principles, themes and styles, sustainability, implementation, maintenance, and much more. By the end of the course, you will have a plan of your garden which you can use yourself or give to a landscaper to implement. Andy Vieth is a passionate gardener and Landscape Architect with over ten years of invaluable experience. His goal is to design lively and enticing landscapes that are rooted in the land and create a built environment that encourages people to connect with nature and the larger world.
