Prior knowledge

Courses corresponding to 60 credits in the main area Landscape Planning or Landscape Architecture.


The course aims to deepen the compositional basis of the vegetation configuration with the emphasis on the park and garden context. On the basis of previously acquired knowledge of the characteristics of the plant material and its development under different conditions, the course aims to provide training in composing well functioning plantations with varying character and for different purposes.

On completion of the course, students will be able to:

- describe and provide examples of a number of Swedish and international models that are characterised by a high level of quality as regards plant composition and form concepts

- describe the suitability of different plants as compositional material in different situations with respect to spatiality, site, maintenance ambitions and function

- device an accurate planting plan with associated plant list.

In addition, on completion of the course students will have practised their ability to:

- design and compose well functioning plantations/environments that take account of the varying conditions of different planting sites as regards spatiality, site, maintenance ambitions and function

- design/compose character-strong environments, which mainly consist of plants, that are permeated from the great design-related and spatial entirety down to the smallest detail by an abstract idea/a concept.


The course comprises studies and skills training in:

- the ability of individual plants to function as architectonic elements, reinforcing their nature

- the use and significance of plants in modern landscape architecture as well as on historical sites

- functional and aesthetic aspects of the structure of plantation

- the mutual interplay between planting proposals and the goals formulated about desired features and creative vision

- account of site plan with a description of expected characters and planting schedule including plants register.
