LDEM 222 | Studio III: Landscape Planting Design

​​​​​The course introduces students to the basic principles of designing with plants. Landscape Architecture combines elements of art and science to create a functional, aesthetic and spatial experience of the outdoor space. One initial purpose of designing with plants is to understand how to blend technology (the built environment) into the natural surroundings and to bring natural elements into the built environment. 

In order to work toward a desirable lan​​​​dscape design and hence successful planting plan, students will develop working knowledge of artistic elements, design principles and basic horticultural knowledge of plants. Successful plant composition and layout is obtained with acknowledgement of the importance of plants as a design material that enhances the definition and spatia​​l  experience of outdoor spaces.  ​
