New Directions in the American Landscape presents: Landscape Design for New England.
The desire for landscapes that are “ecologically functioning” as well as beautiful is rapidly becoming mainstream. The techniques required to successfully design, plant and maintain these landscapes, however, can differ dramatically from traditional practice. This intensive, six-hour virtual course will span two days and illustrate how to apply these altered practices in a variety of settings including meadows, shrublands, woodlands, and fine gardens.
Attendees will receive an extensive, digital, login-protected manual that documents all aspects of the program, including plant selection criteria, plant recommendations, and ecological process-based management specifications.
