- analyse and suggest plants for an environment from a planting site, function and management perspective
- describe the microclimate at a planting site and link it to important plant physiological factors
- plan and design a planting proposal in an urban environment with regard to function and maintenance
- identify deficiencies regarding plant, soil or environmental factors at a planting site and propose solutions
- produce a presentation material using digital visualisation techniques and suited to a target group
- understand their professional role in relation to that of professional groups as regards problems and solutions associated with planting sites.


- Students’ understanding of plant technology issues will be developed and enhanced through lectures.
- Visits and exercises in environments such as public spaces, residential areas, churchyards and roadside environments will be used to apply and deepen knowledge of planting sites from an economic, ecological and aesthetic perspective.
- In a practical exercise, training will be provided in plant selection from concept to final proposal.
- IT-supported presentation techniques will be practised in an assignment.
