They must take into consideration site characteristics and challenges, as well as plant combinations for year-round interest. Using elements from Landscape Design I, create beautiful planting designs with balance, repetition, and cohesiveness. Gain exposure to different garden situations, such as the sunny perennial border or woodland garden, while considering important ecological aspects. Insightful discussion of traditional plant combinations for both formal and informal styles is paired with examples of effective planting designs used at Longwood and other gardens. This practical course allows you to develop a planting plan based on realistic situations and to clearly communicate the desired effect and design intent.
