Course content

One of the most characteristic features of Landscape Architecture is a considerable degree of freedom of design, but freedom based on both functional and aesthetic requirements.
Prehab’s it is the longevity of trees that encourages simplicity of artistic and architectural design, providing gardens with a sense of universal permanence despite the changes taking place in society around them. Gardens should be functional and yet simple in design.
