"Eliminating poverty housing by building homes in partnership with families in need."

The HORT 400 class worked with the Clemson chapter of Habitat for Humanity to design and implement the landscape of a Habitat House that was built on Bowman Field during Homecoming 1999 and moved to its current site in Central, SC.


Landscape Implementation Professor Mary Haque consults the planting design for proper placement of the plant materials.
