Introduction to Landscape Design Adult Field Course @ Grandfather Mountain | Linville | North Carolina | United States

Consider the performance of your home landscape. Would you describe it as a fit, functional work of art that reflects your lifestyle and encourages outdoor activity? If not, join landscape architect, Preston Montague, for a design workshop that will help you make informed and confident decisions about issues facing you in the landscape.

Preston will present tenets of landscape design he’s learned as a professional landscape architect as well as his approach to solving a range of problems that include drainage, planting and overall aesthetics. Participants are encouraged to bring some of their most pressing landscape challenges and/or aspirations to the workshop for Preston to go through and provide ideas. Participants will leave having learned a professional’s design process, some solutions to their aesthetic goals or challenges, and exposure to issues facing other participants that might help solve similar problems.

The event is part of Grandfather Mountain’s Adult Field Course series, which offers participants the chance to explore the mountain like never before. Students examine specific aspects of the park ecosystem through fun, hands-on field excursions. The course leaders are experts in their fields and include professors, naturalists, scientists and acclaimed photographers, writers, historians and artists.

Cost is $60 per person (or $25 for members of Grandfather Mountain’s Bridge Club program), with registration required in advance.
