IPF gives MSU students hands-on experience
October 10, 2016
Every year, IPF’s Landscape Services helps MSU Horticulture students learn practical planting skills on campus.
“We do a planting lab and an irrigation lab,” said Matt Bailey, Landscape Services coordinator. “We teach the class proper planting techniques, equipment, layout and methods.”
Tressa Wahl, IPF landscape designer, is also involved in the labs. She talks with students about design intent, reasoning for picking certain plants over others and design challenges. Two labs are done per year to help students gain hands-on experience.
