Lead by Horticulture Educator, Chris Enroth; this course will include lecture and lab sessions that will enable you to envision and redesign your landscape. The six-week course aims to arm the everyday homeowner with the knowledge and tools to transform a conventional landscape into one that embraces sustainable principles. This course will count as an Advanced Master Gardener Certification for any existing Master Gardeners. However, anyone is welcome to join with no experience necessary. This course includes the Landscape for Life Manual, tracing paper, a t-square, engineering ruler, and other landscaping design tools required to draft your new landscaping plans!
