Assignment 3 - Images of Nature in your Environment
- Assigned: Wednesday, October 30

An 'image of nature' can be any planting design or vegetation structure. It might be on a local scale in your direct vicinity or be a part of a wider landscape structure. Each group member finds an individual page here that links to a template. You can use this template for documenting your case.

Presentation Slides Collaborative Design
Discussion of four main ideas of design. 1: Swales for river infrastructure improvement and holding more run off water, brings another interesting element to the river. 2. meandering pathway, made with gravel underneath for some stability, vegetation growing through will be mown. This is best as flooding will not cause problems, and the route of the pathway can be changed with different mowing patterns. 3: Natural fence made with climbing plants for barrier of rail tracks, however is permeable and so the train line is still part of the site. 4. Perhaps most importantly bringing forward the question of community involvement. Community members could have their own patches to plant vegetables etc, they would be taught about maintenance, negative elements of the river way could be improved by them, example: by getting school children to paint, and create art on the concrete barriers running along the river. Also discussion about plants and species suitable for the river.
