COMMUNICATING DESIGN CONCEPTS QUICKLY (NE Ohio)
Most of us are landscape designers and contractors, not artists. We need to be able to
communicate our ideas quickly to a client & move on with what we do best, installing &
maintaining beautiful landscapes. This clinic will teach you the fundamentals of creating a
3D sketch that will excite your client and shorten sales time. This is the ideal way to show how
portions of a larger project will look or to sell small enhancement projects when a traditional
landscape plan isn’t necessary.
