Outstanding

I have taken a number of landscape design courses but this one is one of those that really sticks. It's not that easy but a great deal of information is provided in this webinar to help you understand how it works and apply them.

You won't regret it

When I signed up to this course, I was not expecting much. After an hour of non-stop information, I was glad I did. The instructor has done an amazing job explaining things, going into details, and presenting examples. Thank you for a fun learning...

Highly recommended

Wonderful course on desert soils. The instructor is very knowledgeable in the subject matter and seems to like talking about it, which makes it more enjoyable. I'd like to try and take a course again with ISDM. Kudos!

What is different with desert soils than forest soils? Much of what we are traditionally taught about soil is based on an ideal forest soil, but the aspects of desert soils behave differently, and it is critical to understand the differences to effectively design in a desert soil environment. During this webinar, soil will be discussed as a 3 dimensional scientific body. The webinar will provide a breakdown of soil components, geology, the forming factors of soil, solar insulation of the soil, and water holding capacity.
