Annual and perennial beds and borders


This is a group assignment. Work in Groups of up to 3 members.

The assignment for week 11 and 12 is to design an annual bed, perennial bed, or mixed annual and perennial bed for the bed of your choice on campus. You can pick any bed or combination of beds, but the total area of the combined beds must be at least 75 square feet. You may also choose an area that is not currently a flower bed. Your design should take into consideration the clients desire to showcase a variety of superior species and cultivars in a low maintenance bed that will provide color and interest. Provide a site analysis, plant list, planting plan, plant source list, and maintenance plan. Be sure to describe your design intent along with why your plant choices are justified for achieving your design.
