Course description

In this eight-week course, you will learn the landscape design process through asynchronous online exercises, readings, video demonstrations, lesson activities and class discussion forums via an online Brightspace learning platform, in addition to a weekly live session. You will leave the course with the essential tools to design a garden landscape plan specifically for the Pacific Northwest.

Please note: The weekly 1.5hr live session will be offered face to face as well as simultaneously via Zoom, starting on September 19th. You will have access to the Brightspace course site on September 18th. Choose one of these live session delivery options when you register. Once your selection is made, you must continue with your chosen delivery mode for the remainder of the course.

This course is part of the Micro-certificate in Amateur Landscape and Garden Design. Please select the program fee at an additional cost of $20 if you wish to receive the certificate once you have completed both courses. 

Once you have completed your second course, your certificate will be automatically issued and to you. Certificates will be sent approximately one month after the completion of your second course. 

Note: We are unable to retroactively issue a micro-certificate. Students must purchase the $20 program fee prior to the last day of the last course in the program.
