Brass Tacks of Landscape Design
Sundays, March 4 & 11, 12:30-3:15pm

Instructor: Monique Allen, The Garden Continuum

Session one outlines the fundamentals of landscape design theory starting with an overview of garden ecology and a review of the layers: Infrastructure ~ Structure ~ Enhancements. This discussion will go over the permanent year round features of all landscapes (the bones) and review all of the convertible elements that transition through the seasons (the flesh). This discussion will also review the development of the design concept starting with the Needs ~ Wants ~ Wishes exercise (homework for next session).

Session two will review the hands on elements of a site analysis from data gathering to documentation and interpretation in order to help guide the designer in making sound design choices. We will discuss plant inventory as well as surrounding vegetation (including weeds) to help with analysis. In this discussion we will review the Needs ~ Wants ~ Wishes exercise and review concept planning using bubble diagrams and discuss preliminary layout planning.
