Q: Is the Mac book Pro a sufficient device for the Sketch Up Pro for Landscape Design Course?
A: The Mac book Pro would be sufficient in ‘brain power’ to do the work. However, we recommend an additional screen to have a larger workspace to work with.

Q: Am I able to see a detailed syllabus? I wasn't able to find one on the website
A: Yes, the week by week course lessons are displayed in the course schedule under the course of your choice. To access; click on your course from the main menu, then click on the schedules and registration button to see the weekly agenda(s).

Q: Are printed materials available or provided for your courses?
A: No, we are unable to provide printable versions of the slideshows from our courses.

 

Q: Can I send proof of completing programs that included SketchUp Pro and horticulture to act as my prerequisites for the Ecological Landscape Design program?
A: No, we do not accept other education programs as equivalent prerequisites for the Ecological Landscape Design Online course.

 

 

When completing the course in the winter, before the ground freezes solid, collect a 1 cup soil sample from an area you'd like to have the soil tested for. You can keep it in a plastic bag until needed throughout the course.

Tip:

The soil can crust over with frost/ice but just below the surface, with a good spade or pick the soil is usually dig-able; also, closer to buildings the soil freezes last.
