Class information /registration: Landscape Design Basics

Do you have that really tough gardener to buy for? Someone who seems to have everything, and is

always branching out into new gardening? Do you have a friend or family member who just bought a new house and wants to get their hands dirty this spring by re-doing the landscaping? Or are you that someone and need to drop a few hints that a landscape design workshop would wrap up nicely as a holiday gift?

Landscape Design Basics Workshop is just the ticket to getting started on that new yard and garden project in 2019. Throughout the five classes, students work on their own  entry garden and / or patio or deck garden. Class exercises and lectures revolve around the process of sustainable design, considerations and principles, plant selection, concept plans and concept lines, landscape spaces, implementation, etc. Weekly class critiques provide valuable feedback from instructors and their peers. Exercises help students to practice these skills in class and then apply them to their projects during their weekly homework.

Landscape Design Basics is hosted by the Minnesota State Horticulture Society and taught by U of M Extension educator, Julie Weisenhorn, and Jim Calkins, design consultant and former U of M instructor.
