Fifth graders step into a landscape architect’s shoes as they solve the problems of garden design. How do you blend a landscape and a built environment? How should it feel?
Textures, shapes, colors, and symmetry are all elements that are part of good garden design. How do you deal with scale?
Unlike paintings, living things grow. Will this plant still maintain the designer’s intention when it is three times as big?
Students plot sensory maps and solve the design challenge of a new addition. Your client has given you instructions to put a boat dock in the Cummer Gardens. How will you do this and maintain the integrity of the original design?
Introducing students to careers in landscape architecture is all part of the new Fifth Grade Garden Tour.
I would love to hear how this event turned out. April is National Landscape Architecture Month. Let me know if another event is scheduled and how I may assist. Thank you.
