- outdoor learning;
- physical challenges;
- a sense of inclusion;
- a sense of ownership.
The landscape environment should also:
- provide a safe place to be;
- provide equitable access to all areas;
- allow multiple use area for a variety of activities;
- provide passive and active recreation opportunities.
Establishing appropriate landscape design principles at the outset of the project will assist in delivering a cohesive landscape design.
Landscape design principles to consider include:
- the existing environment, site location, topography and existing landscape elements;
- landscape character;
- sense of place and ownership;
- cultural backgrounds of students;
- shade, colour and spatial arrangements;
- overland flow and stormwater requirements for large areas such as sporting fields;
School grounds often have a range of uses and therefore need to be flexible and accommodate various community groups. A priority for the landscape of any educational facility is to provide an environment for learning and appreciation of the outdoors. This will assist in ensuring consistent and high performance outcomes from students.
