Fifth Grade Garden Tours: Gardners by Design

Nov

30

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? Windy Hill Elementary Garden Tour17

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? 5th Grade Garden & Sculpture Tours15

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? Windy Hill Elementary Garden Tour09

Introducing students to careers in landscape architecture is all part of the new Fifth Grade Garden Tour.
