Landscape Lab GATEway Garden


The Landscape Lab GATEway Garden, located in the Hunt Hall courtyard, serves as a living laboratory for landscape architecture students. Every fall, students design and build a new feature for the courtyard. In the past students have created covered bike parking, a storm water catchment and rain garden, a deck and benches made from campus-grown redwood trees, and, most recently, a pergola. The plan is for future students to build upon and further improve these projects in the months and years ahead. The Landscape Lab highlights innovative materials, regionally appropriate plants, and a variety of environmentally friendly building techniques.

Get inspired by the creativity, design and construction knowledge displayed in these projects. You may even find ideas for your own yard!
