Start Designing

This is the beginning of choosing your own adventure into the design of vegetated projects. Below are the main topic areas. There is no set order, no restrictions, simply take time to go through the topics, learn, and design. Remember design is iterative, come back to topics again, ignore others. You have the choice as the designer, these topics below are simply guidelines and reference. Just have fun with it.

At first I would look over Design Thinking.

Then move onto other stuff to think about when designing vegetated assemblies: Color TheoryPlant Biology, Drawing Techniques, and Building Aspects.

The entirety of the site can be summed up in the graphic below. This means using the design process and information about topics simultaneously to inform the designs. Don’t worry. We have visual examples of projects too.
