At the conclusion of this Unit students will have an appreciation of what is required to realise the design concept ‘on the ground’.
Through a series of lectures, studio workshops, site visits and independent research, students will consider the contractual methods and preparation of design documentation necessary to deliver the design intent. Students will have to evaluate the implications and merits of the various methods and documents on the process of implementing the design. Students will learn how to produce a documentation package that forms the basis of a landscape construction contract.

Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Students are expected to attend all workshops and engage in any invited lectures or workshop activities
