Courses on landscape and place

Plants and nature have turned out to be warp and weft of most of what I do in life. (A few years back, a little girl on a nature hike I was leading asked me “When are you going to talk about the animals instead of the plants?” So of course, I said, “I’ll talk about the animals just for you. How about that?”) I’ve been fortunate to be able to make a life out of landscape design, and I’ve found that it informs a lot more than just my job.

No matter who we are, there’s always more to learn, and I look forward to learning from my students as we go through the courses. Join me for a wander through the wonderful world of nature and landscape design. Each course takes a great deal of time and effort to prepare, so it will take a bit to fill out the roster.

My first offering is a synthesis of landscape design with real estate investing. It’s aimed at investors who can use landscape design and the other elements of curb appeal to improve their property value. An introductory webinar leads into the course by reviewing the available research to show which curb appeal improvements offer the highest return on investment.

I am working with a dedicated course platform to host Root Stem Leaf’s online courses. When you click on the button above, you’ll be taken to the platform where you can learn about the course, create an account, and sign up for the course.

Webinar: The Curb Appeal Improvements that Give the Best ROI

Don’t guess what you need to do to raise your property value. Dig into the research. In fact, I’ve already done it. Click the button above to access the webinar.

How can curb appeal, including landscape design, help boost a house’s value and possibly sell it faster? It’s something I’ve written a couple posts about on Bigger Pockets, and I dig much deeper in the webinar.
Whether you’re a real estate investor or a home owner, it is important to make sure your house’s curb appeal, or front aspect, is both well-maintained and attractive.  Research has shown that landscape elements can increase the value of a home significantly and help to sell it faster once you put it on the market.
