LAR 432 - Plants in the Landscape I

3 Credit Hours
This course provides students with an introduction to the use of plant materials in the built environment, drawing upon contemporary approaches to landscape architecture and sustainable landscape design. The course is structured to provide students with concrete working knowledge - identification and performative characteristics - of approximately 120 plants that are somewhat common in the southeast or across the United States with a particular emphasis on plants that are well-adapted to urban situations. In addition to plant identification, the course will provide students with a series of frameworks through which to consider how plants have been or could be utilized, as well as emerging ecological theories such as novel ecosystems.

Contact Hour Distribution: 2 lecture and 1 lab.
