SketchUp Bootcamp with Bill Einhorn, APLD, RLA
Get a solid introduction to SketchUp or just brush up your skills. Bill Einhorn teaches SketchUp regularly at the New York Botanical Garden and we have him for the entire day!
Selling your design vision depends on how well you can communicate your intent to a client. 3D imaging has become an industry standard and SketchUp is the go-to tool to create those images. SketchUp integrates with all other CAD programs including Dynascape and Vectorworks to enable you to create dynamic 3D visual presentations for clients.
The workshop will be taught in the state of the art design studio in the new LEED Gold certified Landscape and Horticultural Technology building (#14) at County College of Morris and will be limited to 20 participants, lunch will be served.
Seating is Limited so please check your email for more information regarding pricing options and directions.

Learn more about LandscapeDesign!
THE SPEAKERS AND THEIR TOPICS:
9:15 – 10:45 am Marta McDowell
LAYERS IN THE LANDSCAPE:
The Pleasures and Perils of Historic Landscape Preservation
Historic gardens present unique challenges for the designer. This lecture will present a brief overview of American garden styles, discuss the standards for evaluating and restoring period gardens and discuss sources for research, appropriate plants and project help. We will work through a case study using an early 20th century garden at Fosterfields, a county owned property in Morristown, NJ.
11 – 12 noon Bruce Crawford
SPACE -Not Just the Final Frontier
Space is consistently one of the most difficult concepts for Landscape Designers to grasp. Although relatively easy to understand when thinking about interior spaces of a building, it suddenly becomes a challenge when faced with an open expanse in the landscape. This presentation is a fun and reflective look at creating spaces in the outdoor environment and how a properly sequenced and proportioned spatial experience can create a wonderful visitor experience.
12 Noon – 12:45 pm *****LUNCH*****
