SRUC

At SRUC we have several courses that look into the landscape, how it can be managed through the application of hard and soft landscaping techniques, and the technical landscaping skills required to ensure it is managed correctly.

The landscape that surrounds us can be modified in many ways, often by design, sometimes via anthropogenic pressures.

Landscaping can relate to the modification of a park to make it more amenable to the local population, but it can also relate to the conservation of an area to reduce the impact caused through path erosion or other factors.
