The purpose of the course is to develope students ability to describe, analyse and propose solutions within the problem complex plant selection, planting site, function and management for urban green structures and the peri-urban landscape.
On completion of the course, students will be able to:
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.
Compulsory components: study trips, exercises and project work.
