Landscape Design: A Process for the Homeowner

Saturday, March 7 - 2:00 pmFrom $110.00
Back by popular demand! You may know what a landscape is, but do you know what "design" is? In this expanded five-part series, landscape architect Don Borden—a former professor at Temple and Delaware Valley universities—will share his experience to help you understand the ins and outs of the design process. You'll learn about the creative part of the process—from how to use texture, color, and constructed aspects—to how to choose the best solutions for your landscape. The final class will help you put it all together. Those attending should select a project area they would like assistance with and bring photographs and a sketch or plan of the area to the first class. Seminar participants should also bring soft pencils, markers, color pencils and yellow tracing paper (any art store) to each class. Don Borden is a retired registered Landscape Architect who earned degrees from Rutgers University in landscape architecture and Temple University in landscape design. He has 47 years in professional practice and taught at Temple University in Landscape Design and Delaware Valley University in Landscape Architecture. This series must be purchased as a whole, in advance. Individual sessions are not available for purchase. This series takes place on five Saturdays: March 7 - April 4.
