What you'll learn in this landscape design class:

You do not need to leave the city to find nature; it can be as close as your backyard. Gain the skills necessary to create landscape designs in harmony with nature by working with natural systems and native plants to provide lush, beautiful sanctuaries for people, songbirds, and butterflies. Learn how to evaluate site conditions in order to create aesthetically pleasing and functional native landscape designs for homeowners, corporate campuses, and other public spaces.

You will understand how to properly select native plants for the best results and lowest maintenance for the site. Best of all, you will discover why using native plants is the best option for environmentally friendly gardening and landscaping.
