Berkshire Botanical Garden

This course, presented by Tyler Horsley, will introduce students to the design process — the systematic way designers approach a site and client. The course will include a series of simple projects that will end with a garden designed by the students. Learn design principles such as form, balance, repetition, line, texture, color, and spatial relationships. Additionally, students will be introduced to landscape history and how it helps the designer resolve and inspire garden design. 

A native of Utah, Tyler Horsley has gardened all his life. Living in New York City  for 30 years, he was a member of the Green Guerillas and 6th Street and Avenue B Community Garden in the East Village, where he served as the garden’s vice president and member of its board of directors. Tyler earned a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Virginia, a Certificate in Horticulture from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and is a registered architect in New York. In 2005, he decided to focus on his first love and specialize in garden design, founding Tyler Horsley Garden Design. Tyler now lives in Hudson, N.Y., and works on expansive and earthbound projects.
