The Home Landscape Design series covers the basics of designing residential landscapes that are attractive, comfortable, functional, sustainable and appropriate for the Sonoran Desert. The instructor will walk participants through each phase of design and assign exercises relating to each phase, from programming through concept design. Class participants can use their own gardens for these exercises, whether they are creating a new landscape or renovating an existing one. Session I will cover basic design processes and principles. Different design philosophies, such as xeriscape, permaculture, sustainable and regenerative, will be discussed.
