Maintaining that loose, aesthetic appeal requires landscape-design students to not only master the essentials of design but also fundamental drawing skills. Tony Bertauski introduces aspiring designers to the techniques of drawing, leading them from no knowledge of the craft to a final plan drawing of professional quality. Throughout, he emphasizes that a drawn landscape plan has not only aesthetic value but also communicates effectively with clients.
