Planting design is an art that requires a professional knowledgeable in horticulture and creative with nature's palette. The BAC's Planting Design Certificate prepares you to effectively use living materials in the design of environments that are functional, sustainable, and harmonize aesthetically with their surroundings. Focus on methods of site design, materials choice and plant selections as you prepare for a rewarding career as a sole practitioner, as part of a retail garden operation, or as a team member in a landscape architecture firm. All classes in the Planting Design Certificate transfer into the Bachelor of Landscape Architecture Program. Benefits to certificate students include access to the Learning Resource Center and library borrowing privileges.
