This class guides students through designing a master plan for their landscape. Every class begins with a lecture on the principles, process and elements of landscape design. Remaining class time is organized around a studio format where students share their design plans with the instructor and each other. If time and weather allow, the class will explore the Arboretum for examples of plants and design elements.

Nina Shippen practices residential landscape and garden design through her company Gardeniña, which focuses on coupling the principles of healing gardens with sound ecologic practices to create satisfying gardens for her clients. A graduate of the landscape design program at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies, she has lived and gardened in Transylvania County since 2005. gardeninadesign.com
