What you'll learn in this landscape design class:

Classes cover how, where, and when to start a project, and how to design for hillside, sunny, shady, small, and large lots.

Required materials: 
  • Your site photos and a site plan (a hand-drawn one is fine)
  • A 5-gallon Rhaphiolepis plant (Indian Hawthorne or Pink Lady)
  • Pruning shears
