Master Gardener Series: Sustainable Landscape Design

This series of short courses is excerpted from OSU’s Master Gardener online course, allowing you to study specific fundamentals of gardening.

Sustainable Landscape Design Course

In the online Sustainable Landscape Design course, you will learn how to evaluate a site to understand the factors that affect plant growth, and how to match plants to the site for a more sustainable landscape. Basic design principals are also covered.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate the sustainability of a landscape in a methodical way
  • Design a sustainable landscape, informed by your landscape evaluation and needs
  • Explain the importance of site evaluation, relative to plant selection and sustainable landscape design
  • Recognize how landscape design impacts resource use, and the impact design choices can have on the environment
