REGISTERING  SIGNS YOU UP FOR THE ENTIRE SERIES OF NINE CLASSES.  LANDSCAPE PROFESSIONALS ONLY PLEASE (i.e. landscape company employees, HOA board members, property managers, landscape designers, etc.)

This class is basic to understanding the dynamic relationships of soils, plants, and water and is the foundation course of the Smartscape Series. Instruction focuses on soil texture and structure and how it affects water movement, infiltration rates and water holding capacity. Mechanisms that plants use to regulate water use are also discussed.
