Hi, have you tried the clone tool, I create master files of trees with shadows locked, then clone/stamp.February 13, 2014 at 8:34 pm #153152
Very true, I’m not a BIM specialist, but vectorworks is closing in on practices in the UK. An excellent tool, and cost effective. Cheap upgrades if you take the service option.September 24, 2013 at 4:48 am #156940
Very nice, I like the new version, sorry I didn’t see it before. Ready to go I think. Very good indeed. Good look on your journey.

Hi I like your portfolio and artwork, agree that it is busy, but very nice work. Front cover is a bit loud, I prefer plain, no images in the background including space around the work. Remove any image of yourself, one mistake I was corrected on a long time ago, employers should judge your work which is good and not the person on the cover. And put in only the best images on your work that will hit the prospective employer on turning the page. It doesn’t have to show your journey from Uni, but can be shown at the end or near the end…
Try to format it to 5Meg email. first three peice of your best project first.

It is good that American Nursery Journal is following the same line, I have seen some impressive designs with the freeway bridges incorporating large areas for animals and over species to make safe passage. This also helps bio-diversity in vast amounts. I look forward to reading the link,
Thank you so much Richard KidgerJune 28, 2013 at 11:03 pm #158412
Vectorworks, LandFX AND standalone software for CAD Keyscape will do the job. I have had vectorworks for a few years. Student version is free, it is a little complex but they all work very well and industry recognized.
View them on YouTube first

A landscape architect, is a broad field. I was in practice and will be again one day. I’m a visual artist and engineer. I’ve gone back to engineering due to the un-stability in the UK. I also work freelance and design gardens. It’s good to specialize, touch base with all part of the discipline, and constantly download software that is required and for positions and do some training. YouTube has good examples.

I found your link to this BBC page on grass free lawns, it’s very interesting and currently Sheffield University has done similar types of planting strategies. I love the increase biodiversity within garden; my bird boxes are regularly full of Tree Bees every year.
The project is more of a sensory garden area than a lawn; which is nice but I feel that it wouldn’t last without constant maintenance. I would love to see a project with tough and robust forms of planting plan for this project. But to be truthful I have a garden full of creeping buttercups, daisies and wild plants that do the job fine.
One event in the UK, grass verges on Motorways (Freeways) has been left to grow wild with one cut in winter. This method has saved millions on budgets every year and has been very beneficial to the biodiversity.August 2, 2011 at 11:10 pm #161265
I think you’ll do fine, economics can be combined with your Landscape Architecture
Experience. For example in the UK there was position at DEFRA, government
Position for an MA economics and environmental qualification or experience
For flood strategy planning and economic stats for the next 20 year pridictions.
Pay offer was around £50 to £60k. Personally I’m an engineer and truck mechanic.
I love LA and GD it’s a passion, but it’s good to diversify.July 10, 2011 at 10:52 am #161624July 10, 2011 at 10:50 am #161625
I think there is one in Switzerland, it on the Job board I think. there is also a few in Canada!! I work for myself at the moment so I can’t help on the experience of internships, but i believe you have to take a leap of get in the door which is always good.
