This intensive full-day landscape design workshop is your opportunity to learn the theory and basic principles of sustainable landscape design and how to avoid the landscape design mistakes that are commonly made by novices and professionals alike. Historically offered as an in-person workshop, we have worked hard to create an effective online offering as an alternative in response to the challenges associated with COVID-19. The curriculum is comprehensive and focuses on the landscape design process in a logical, step-by-step fashion to introduce the basic principles of sustainable landscape design and includes a sequence of real-world, landscape-specific exercises to provide opportunities to put pencil to paper and apply the landscape design principles and techniques that are discussed during the workshop. Without a doubt, spring and the principles learned during this informative workshop should get your creative juices flowing as you consider the exciting possibilities for your home landscape.


Instructors: Julie Weisenhorn, University of Minnesota Extension Horticulture Educator, and Jim Calkins, Production & Landscape Horticulturist and Research Information Director for the Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association; Julie and Jim are also former landscape design instructors at the University of Minnesota.
