DLB204 Planting Design

This second year unit builds on your knowledge of environmental sustainability and introduces you to scientific, horticultural and planting design principles and their application in sustainable site-based planting design, including the specific conventions of planting design communication. As such, the unit engages with the basic plant sciences (botany, ecology and horticulture) including: botanical nomenclature, morphology, plant forms, assemblages and systems, and plant cultivation requirements. You will apply this knowledge to develop and articulate sustainable site-based planting design propositions and extend your communication techniques.
