Legacy, Jim; And Others
This competency-based curriculum unit on implementing the landscape plan is one of five developed for classroom use in teaching the landscape/nursery area of horticulture. The seven sections are each divided into teaching content (in a question-and-answer format) and student skills that outline steps and factors for consideration. Topics covered include laying out the landscape plan, installing drainage systems, installing irrigation systems, preparing the soil, selecting plant materials, planting flowers by seed and transplanting, and establishing the lawn by seed or sod. A list of references precedes a section containing visual aids, student skill checklist, and student activities, such as field trips, handouts, discussion activities, worksheets, crossword puzzles, hands-on experiences, tests, and quizzes. Answer keys are provided. (YLB)
