While demand for ecology-based landscapes is increasing dramatically, access to the specialized knowledge needed to achieve them is not. This course will provide ‘real world’ guidance for designing native meadows, shrublands, woodlands and naturalistic gardens that contain a literal connection to the patterns and processes of our indigenous landscapes. Planting and management techniques will also be discussed, including formats for writing specifications that balance the need for both detail and usability. Finally, techniques for applying a legible ‘artistic overlay’ that can accommodate the varied aesthetic preferences of our clients will be woven throughout the program.
Applicable Regions: Eastern and Midwestern US (Florida excluded).
Note: This course will have some repeated information from previous intensive design short courses.
Attendees will receive login-protected access to an extensive course manual including plant lists, an ecology-based plant characteristics chart, equipment recommendations, wildlife habitat enhancement strategies, diagrams for planting and maintenance procedures, and more.
Note: If attending individual sessions only, Day 1 is a “recommended” prerequisite to Days 2, 3, 4, & 5.
