Proposals for PL Robertson Public School, Milton :

In October of 2017, Gelderman Landscape Services hosted teams of landscape design students from the University of Guelph and Niagara Parks School of Horticulture to travel to Milton, ON to participate in a design charrette with students and teachers from PL Robertson Public School.

Using the input and ideas generated during the charrette, the teams created the final proposals below for a new natural schoolyard at PL Robertson. The designs will be voted on by the students at PL Robertson and judged by a panel of professionals according to the following criteria. Winners will be announced at Landscape Ontario Congress on January 9th, 2018:

    1. The design encourages interaction with the space using all five senses.
    2. The design integrates the creative input of the students and teachers who will use it.
    3. The design creates habitat for native wildlife
    4. The design effectively manages and utilizes rainwater.
    5. The initial phase of the design can be built on a budget of $45,000.
