A home landscape brings nature into harmony with man’s needs. Nature adapts plants and animals to the environment. Man, however, adapts the environment to his requirements. A landscape design provides public spaces for welcoming guests; functional spaces for dining, entertaining, and recreation; as well as personal spaces for rest, relaxation, and reflection—nature adapted to man’s needs.

“It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Robert Boyd. Mr. Boyd has been a student of Landscape/Horticulture at Hennepin Technical College (HTC) for the past 4 semesters. The Landscape Design program at HTC is designed to encourage students to think about landscape design and construction systematically, logically, and coherently. Through this process students are prepared for many challenges that the work environment may bring. Over the course of the past semesters, I’ve had ample opportunity to assess Mr. Boyd’s intellectual abilities. In class, he always has intelligent, thought-provoking comments and presents them in clear, precise form. Not only are his observations always analytically sound, but they contribute greatly to the class discussion in so far as they provoke further reflection upon topics that need to be emphasized. Not only is his class participation superb, but he received excellent marks on all of his assignments. Robert has done a great job at challenging himself by taking classes in all parts of our program. He has completed the required courses including others outside of the degree in order to better prepare him for employment. As you can see, Mr. Boyd’s performance in the Landscape/Horticulture program was outstanding. He is an extremely promising student—highly motivated, persistent, and intelligent. It has been a joy and a privilege to have him in my class. It is obvious to me that Robert will make an excellent employee in any area of Landscape/Horticulture/Arboriculture. I believe that Mr. Boyd will be a tremendous asset to your company and to our industry in general. I highly recommend him for just such an endeavor.”

A shrub border gives the large sideyard the look and feel of a backyard. Pavers transform the driveway into an attractive patio.
A dramatic entertaining area is created by duo terraces in back. Handicapped access is served by a diagonal walkway and establishes a sunny locale to show off favorite roses.
