This subject is a critical examination of landscape and the principles of using materials and assemblages in them. Understanding these principles is a key part of the design process as applied in professional practice. The subject addresses core aspects of landscape construction; material characteristics and applications; the assemblage process; construction detailing and documentation; and ongoing management and maintenance.
