Landscape design class to be offered

For the Daily Call

PIQUA — Does your garden lack that certain quality, but you don’t know how to plan the perfect outdoor space? Are you a do-it-yourselfer? The Randolph & McCulloch Complex invites you to Introduction to Landscape Design, a four-week course in which students will learn the elements of design and produce a master plan for their gardens or garden projects.

The course will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Tuesday from May 1 to May 22, in the Schmidlapp Free School library building at 509 N. Main St., Piqua.

The class instructor will be Chicago landscape architect Damon Wilson. A native of Piqua, Wilson is the owner of Resource One Landscape Architects. Wilson has been a licensed registered landscape architect in the state of Illinois since 1998. The focus of his work is primarily residential and site scale design. He has completed hundreds of projects in the Chicago area in the last 20 years.

In addition to a general overview of garden design, topics will include form composition; site analysis; hardscapes, walls and structures; plants as design elements; selection of materials; and many more. Drawing materials will be provided.

The cost of the course is $60, which includes all materials and refreshments. Payment can be made as follows: Checks should be made out to Randolph & McCulloch Complex and are due by April 27, or a cash payment can be made the first day of class with prior notice and registration.

If demand warrants, a second class will be added in the evening from 5:30 -8:30 p.m. If attendance at all sessions is not possible, make-up sessions will be available.

Register by emailing Larry Hamilton at or calling (937) 778-1035. Leave your name, an email address, if available, and a contact number. State your preference for day or evening Class. A course packet will be sent via email prior to the first class.
