Project Description: To expand entrance landscaping down the length of our entrance fence on both sides.
Site improvement goals: Our neighborhood entrance has limited landscaping, we need ideas about different types of native plants with year round color.
Opportunities: Landscaping down the entire length of both sides of entrance fence
Challenges: Small section of topography that may need grading or retaining wall, we would rather find a way to work around that section without grading or a retaining wall if possible. We just do not know what plants would do well in that area.

Budget for design work: Negotiable
Budget for installation: $15-$20,000

Project Name: Memorial Front and Back Garden
Project Location (City/County): Mount Airy/ Habersham County
Contact Name: Navi Ramos | Email: ramos.navi@nullgmail.com | Phone:706-499-1186
Project Description, including: Design and plant a perennial “front memorial garden” that will flow with beauty to the “back memorial” garden that has been started so many times. These two memorial gardens were started 2 years ago in memory of a dear friend, who was more like a mother, who died of Leukemia. She had no family in this country and was never married. After she passed away in my home with hospice I was bound by my promise to keep her at home with me and the “grandchildren” she never had.
Her ashes are still in an urn because what I have planted, removed, and started so many times is not worthy of her ashes. When I asked if she wanted me to bring her back to her country when it was said and done, her reply was “No, my daughter, I want to stay here with you and the kids. Just scatter my ashes by the front door rose bushes you love. That way I can at least whistle at you when you come out.” Needless to say every year, since her passing, I start over. I need to give her a “permanent home”.
Site improvement goals: A place of beauty for a “final resting place”.
Opportunities: Help me fulfill a promise and endless gratitude.
Challenges: An emotional friend bound by a promise.
Timeline for completion: At your convenience, but more like ASAP, because every time I come out of my front door I feel like I failed her because I have not done what I promised.
Budget for design work: Not sure.
Budget for installation: I am a work horse and I can help with digging and planting.

Project Name: Creative Solutions for Integrating Sustainable Backyard Gardenscape Project
Location (City/County): Normaltown, Athens, GA
Contact Name: Kate Finley Piedmont | Email: finley.kate@nullgmail.com | Phone: 706-614-1427
Project Description: Our backyard has two raise garden beds, a compost bin, rain barrel and various edible bushes, trees and vines. We would like to connect natural water source and distribute it to the plants and veggie garden beds. We have an irrigation system that has been chewed through in various spots by our dogs. Our beds and berry bushes also need rehab to produce and protect our food.
Site improvement goals: 1) Create a pet-proof system that allows us to use rain to irrigate plants. 2) Rehabilitate soil in raised beds and create year-round mulching solutions for weed control. 3) Improve composting practices that improve the mineral content and facilitate growing of large edible plants year-round. 4) Develop and implement rotation/fallow transitions to maximize seasonal growth. 5) Protect berries from critters so we can harvest them when ripe.
Opportunities: 1) Irrigation system rehab and creative solutions. 2) Soil optimization. 3) Develop efficient and sustainable mulching practices 4) Create and use best compost for fruit and vegetable nourishment. 5) Plan rotational schedule including soil enrichment (e.g., plant peas after-season for nitrogen supplement)
Challenges: Yard is graded to allow sealed rainbarrel water to drip down to gardens. However, development of a steeper grade for irrigation hoses will greatly help hydration of veggie beds, fruit bushes, vines and trees including fig tree, blueberry and blackberry bushes, muscodine and grape vines.Also, the irrigation system must withstand wear from two dogs who like chewing.

Project Name: Julka Home
Contact Name: Ravneet Julka | Email: rgjulka@nullgmail.com | Phone: 706-206-1423
Project Description: We’re building a home on a wooded, gently sloping lot bordering a pond, dam, and small creek in the back of the lot.  The lot is almost 2 acres and is long and thin.  The house sits towards the front of the lot.  In the back, I’d like a design that provides a small lawn area while preserving the forest aspect with trails and gravel/paver walkways to the pond and creek.  In the front, I’d like a slightly more manicured look that works with a long driveway.   At the risk of being pretentious, the ideal design would incorporate Capability Brown’s ideas of a naturalistic landscape with vistas, concealed and winding paths, and would incorporate plants that provide color at different times of the year.  I’m trying to avoid having a huge green lawn and would like a space thats interesting.
Timeline for completion:  March 2017 for completion of the plans.  Installation may come later in pieces.
Budget for design work:  Negotiable

Project Name: Residential Outdoor Upgrade | Athens Clarke County
Contact Name: Annie Bullington | Email: BullingtonAC@nullgmail.com | Phone: 504-319-2825
Project Description: Our property is little under an acre. A former owner took impeccable care of the yard and gardens, so we have many established trees, bulbs, bushes, and vines. Then the last owner let the property fall into disrepair. I would like to establish new gardens in a few areas and rework some existing areas including a fenced in vegetable garden that I would like to function as a part-time chicken range. The property also has a stone chimenea that needs to be better incorporated into the flow of the space.
Site improvement goals: Get my many potted plants into the ground in an aesthetically pleasing and cohesive design in which they can prosper. Gain ideas and long term goals for making this yard a comfortable living area in which to lounge and work.
Opportunities: Design an upgrade for a property that already has a lot of strengths. Participation in the actual installation is not a requirement. Take home plants that get split/removed. Improve your portfolio. Make a friend!
Challenges: It’s a large area. I believe a few trees will have to be removed soon and may need to be excluded in the plans.

Project Name:  Lyndon House Historic Garden Gardener | Athens GA
Contact: Roger W. Cauthen, Landscape Division Administrator, (706) 613-3561, roger.cauthen@nullathensclarkecounty.com
Description: The Ware-Lyndon House historic garden was constructed during 2015-2016 as an amenity to the house and property. The design was inspired by parterre gardens of the antebellum south in and near Athens. This is a traditional “box” garden with intricate complementing and contrasting elements. In order to be continually presentable, more frequent and detailed landscape maintenance is needed than is routine for most public landscaping. Tasks will include regular weed control, removal of dead flowers and deteriorating plant leafs and tissues, replanting of unsuccessful plantings, water monitoring and irrigation, sweeping of natural path surfaces, monitoring for presence of damaging pests, and removal of litter and general cleaning of the garden and its structures. A student worker with gardening experience and/or aptitude is needed to work a couple of hours, several days per week spring through fall. Opportunities: A chance to learn about parterre gardens where some background study could be enlivened with actual work experience.
Time Frame: Initially summer 2016 – fall 2016, beginning in spring in subsequent years.
Budget: Funding is available to pay a student worker in the range of $10 – $12/hr. depending on qualifications.

Project Name: Double Eagle Upscale Miniature Golf and Beer Garden | Atlanta, GA
Contact: Maxwell Mitchell; Email: projectbogey@nullgmail.com; Phone: 706.832.0863
Description: Submit your proposals for Double Eagle Miniature Golf for an opportunity to win a $100 gift card to Half-Moon Outfitters.  Double Eagle Miniature Golf is a 36-hole upscale miniature golf course and bar located in metro Atlanta.  Unlike traditional miniature golf courses, Double Eagle’s design will mimic a real golf course as much as possible, which means fiberglass windmills and clowns will be nowhere to be seen. Double Eagle will feature one 18-hole course, one 12-hole course, and one 6-hole course. The combined 36 holes should be designed using natural elements such as boulders, slopes and grading, foliage, and water to add fun and difficulty to the course. Additionally, the course should incorporate a lighting package that compliments the design at night. Remember, the holes should include features typically found on full scale golf courses including, doglegs, bunkers, rough, and undulating greens. The course and its neighboring bar/restaurant would be utilized by families, young adults, professionals, and businesses looking for a fun and unique experience in the city. More details will be shared upon interest. Location to be determined but can designers can use either Fulton County parcels 17 019300010513 (1410 Hills Pl NW, Atlanta, GA 30318) or 17 0192 LL1282 (1778 Ellsworth Industrial Dr NW, Atlanta, GA) as sample lots for size and space requirements.
Opportunities: Business development, zoning & ADA compliance, and a unique addition to your portfolio.  Challenges: Space constraints, crowd flow, easy maintenance, and site integration.
Timeline for completion: Initial sketches should be submitted by August 20, with final designs completed by September 30.
Budget for design work: Proposals will be evaluated and a winner will be selected for the gift card. If chosen, further development may be possible.

Project: Redesign of the Eagle Walk for Northeast Georgia Council Boy Scouts of America | Jefferson, GA
Contact: Edward Brown, phone: 706-543-6270, email: edbrown@nulluga.edu
Description: This Eagle Walk has a Large Bronze Eagle and a winding walkway that has bricks of Eagle Scouts from the Northeast Georgia Council. This walk is always expanding and blank bricks are replaced with new Eagle Scouts to honor their recognition of this award. The Northeast Georgia Council Boy Scouts of America is going to have to move this feature in a year or so because of construction expansion and needs some design help for this to happen. The Eagle Walk will remain on the existing property but will move on the other side of the building and will have to be reconfigured.  The Council has worked with students from Warnell School of Forestry and they have been involved in 3 projects over the past 4 years. As seniors one of their requirements is to conduct an assessment of a property and design a program for conservation/recreation/wildlife management depending on their majors. The Northeast Georgia Council has had assessments by students for all 3 of these areas. They have an internal budget to take care of their travel and expenses of the materials are picked up by the School. Since The BSA is a non-profit there are no budgeted funds to pay for this design work. We would be excited to have an appropriate marker within the Eagle Walk for the design work done by students of the College of Environment + Design and we would take care of that cost.
Funding: no
