LACES Credit Hours Approved. Gardens are now presented within wider contexts, including the influence of animals, humans and entire ecosystems. Contemporary ideas about how children learn and the importance of unstructured play influence garden design. Gardens borrow techniques to encourage children’s adventures outdoors—an opportunity to counter the nature deficit. Learn about successful garden design that embodies this shift toward the “controlled wild."
