Course description: Design and installation documents are the tools that landscape professionals use to effectively communicate to clients, contractors, and each other. This course focuses on landscape graphic standards and how to produce hand rendered construction documents. This three-part, in-person interactive workshop will give participants baseline tools to read and draft site plans for residential properties. The first two sessions will give participants the basics to create a design and will culminate with a “pin-up” where their personal drawings will be constructively critiqued by CBLP instructors and other participants.

In this course, participants will:

  • Become familiar with drafting materials for landscape design
  • Learn standard components of design documents (scales, title blocks, compasses, call outs etc.) and how to create them
  • Develop a design plan drawing for a residential site
  • Be introduced to reading topographic maps and how to use municipal GIS maps to source site plans
  • Learn techniques for hand rendering with colored pencil and art markers
