Green Industries – Landscape Construction – THL3E

Course Description:

This course emphasizes the development of advanced skills and knowledge relating to landscape construction, maintenance and the turf industries. Students will learn plan reading along with landscape construction and the maintenance of residential and commercial landscapes.

Topics Covered:

Landscape Design and Architecture

Learn how to design outdoor spaces such as residential yards, playgrounds, urban parks and green roofs.  Students will complete designs using a diverse range of drafting and design techniques.

Hardscaping Design and Build

Design and build hardscape features, this includes but is not limited to decks, outdoor furniture (chairs, benches, pergolas, arbors etc.) and stonework / masonry.

Softscapes and Garden Design

Design and build gardens and learn about the many types of plants and flowers that are used in landscape design in both residential and commercial landscaping (flower beds, urban veggie gardens, green roofs etc.)

All classes will take place in room 160 (Wood Shop) and projects will include the use of tools and equipment within the shop.  You will receive in depth training on the safe and proper use of standard equipment and tools used in landscape construction (saws, drills, hand tools etc.)
