Gardening by Design Class Trip to Yume Japanese Gardens

To help solidify their understanding of Japanese design principles and to see the various styles of gardening and landscape design used in Japan, students in the Gardening by Design class visited Yume Japanese Gardens. The goal is to mesh these design elements with the southwest plant palette and landscape in our school’s courtyard restoration. Their next challenge will be to each create a master design for the courtyard, using what they’ve seen and learned about as a guiding framework.
