Hands-On Landscape Design Series (3-Parts) Jan. 28, Feb. 11, Feb. 25 @ UA/Pima County Cooperative Extension
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Categories: Additional (Homeowner)

Do you want to design or renovate your landscape?  Need some direction about how to start the process or information about plants and maintenance?  The purpose of this series is to provide a method to produce a landscape design for any area in a format which can be implemented as time and budget allow.  You will create your own design on paper for your space.

Supplies needed to complete your project include:
11 x 17 graph paper ¼” or 1/8″ grid
3 7/8″ – 7 1/4″ Circle Template
45 degree triangle
All purpose eraser
Graphic pencils (hard)

Landscape Designer Roger Putney has designed well over 2,000 landscapes for Tucson residents over the past 20+ years.  He started out in the landscape maintenance business and, after trying to maintain landscapes that weren’t working (in so many ways!), decided to earn a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Arizona.  He continues to work in the nursery business and to assist customers with achieving their desired look while having success with their plants.  He has extensive first-hand knowledge and experience in every aspect – from designing and installing to maintaining landscapes in our desert environment.

Class size is very limited (and there is high demand), so please register only if you are certain that you are able to attend all three classes! Registering for any class signs you up for all three.
