There are growing employment opportunities in the burgeoning landscape industry for well trained, ecologically sensitive landscape designers. This paper describes an approach to beginning design for horticulture and landscape architecture students at Temple University's Ambler, Pa., campus, where the emphasis is on teaching design process and principles within an ecological framework. Preliminary exercises focus on an examination of landscape values, the application of design principles and the study of design precedent. Students then apply principles learned within an ecological design process as they design a campus garden or public space.
