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

Reviewed by Anonymous on 8/12/2020
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.
