Intro to Landscape Design - Online
Reviewed by John Zydowsky . on 2/7/2021
To me the class was an appreciation of landscape design and how we use different angles, landmarks, structures, nature and space to create our design

Class was great. Daryl was very informative and knowledgeable. It would have been better to have this as an in person class but at least we got a lot of useful information. One suggestion - If the virtual classes continue, maybe adding an additional session, making it 5 wks would help. There’s a lot to cover and the extra class would help with maybe more actual, personal homework examples.
