  • understanding plants and their seasons
  • succession planting
  • plant quality and proper planting techniques
  • irrigation systems
  • weed, pest, and disease prevention and control

The course will present basic yet comprehensive information on the many interacting systems necessary to create successful gardens such as site analysis, garden design, developing and maintaining healthy soil, understanding plants and their needs, quality plants and proper planting, weed control, pest and disease prevention and efficient irrigation design.

 Once we've discussed the fundamentals, we will critically look at common problem situations and how to fix them.  The last part of the class will go over a variety of plant based, practical design styles that can serve as examples to students on how to get started putting together a concept for their own garden.

The class will focus on organic, ecologically sound practices appropriate to our dry summer climate.
