Sveiki from Latvia

I am a 4th year landscape architecture student in LLU, Latvia. Right now i have jr architect position in a facades building bureau and i've been working there since summer 2006 (more than a year experience for now)
I am planning to immigrate to Canada, Ontario after i finish my university. That is 2009; 2 more years.
I don't speak french, bad for me :L  (but i do speak english, latvian, russian and a bit of german)
I like hockey and snow. We have 5 snowy months here in Latvia, so i think our climates don't differ much.

So, i wanted to search for canadians in this community.

I am really interested in any information about landcape architecture/architecture in Ontario.
-Is it possible to find a job for a guy like me over there? 
-Are the landscape architects/architects needed?
-How much do they pay landscape architects/architects $/h x 40hours/week?
-How's life in canada?

P.S. Our ex-president was a canadian citizen. Let's exchange, if you know what i mean :))

Final Project for Intermediate Landscape Design, Winter Quarter

The site was set in the "Tustin Legacy" in Orange County, California. The site was a former US Marine Corps Air Station that was decommissioned. The city of Tustin has plans to develop the site into a mixed-use, multiple density residential, commercial, retail, and recreational space. It is a 1,584-acre master-planned development that has approximately 86 acres of park and open space. This is a real project that the professors decided to base this quarter's focus on.

"You are tasked with the planning and design of the park and open space system for the Tustin Legacy. The design intent is to accommodate a wide variety of activities and uses for all ages of people while integrating environmentally-responsible land use practicies and principles such as storm water management and water-wise plant palette."

Two previous design phases were group efforts. This is the third and last stage, an individual effort.

I chose to design a Native Californian Plant Trail, to educate and reconnect people of the community with the natural beauty and look of the Californian landscape. I wanted to illustrate how there were showy, garden-worthy plants native to the area that were specifically evolved for the site; coastal sage scrub. No extra water or fertilizer needed for beautiful color, texture and scents.

The individual planting beds I wanted to have maximum impact. I didn't want to emulate typical botanical gardens, which often had only one particular specimen of an individual species. I wanted oomph. You want blue? I'll give you blue. Swathes of California lilacs from the over 15-foot 'Ray Hartman', medium sized 6-8 foot tall 'Celestial Blue', to the groundcover 'Joyce Coulter'. I wanted to pack sages until you could smell them before you saw them. I wanted to turn this particular section of the park into a bird, insect, and small mammal magnet. Hummgingbirds would think they were in heaven from the sheer square footage of blossom. Butterflies. Songbirds and squirrels would go nuts over Coffeeberry and Mahonia.

The Plant Trail I placed next to a planned elementary school. To capitalize on the educational opportunity, I incorporated an outdoor classroom into my design.

My professor noted that my design had my typical playful swirls and curves and he said it was a really lovely, 'necklace effect'. I hadn't even thought of that!

Hello and WASLA

Hello all,

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Brian and I’m a first year landscape architecture student at the University of Washington.

The posts here seem to be few and far between, so I’m going to try to post here more often.

Post one:

The WASLA conference is here in Seattle on February 2nd and I’m really jazzed to go. This will be my first LA related function I’ve been to. I think more then just the information aspect; I’m looking forward to meeting a few LA’s from the community. I’m also going to be taking a little class the next day at Mithun Architects about soils, plants, and compost. It should be fun.

Is anyone else going that is on here?

Just out of curiosity who here is actually practicing and who are students?
plants, landscape

Save a Tree

Earlier today, I was reading the blog of chocolatier David Lebovitz and he was discussing some fabulous jam some old friends of his make. They have a single tree of Blenheim apricots in their backyard and they make jam and you gte on a waiting list and in July they ask for money and you can buy a single pint of this delicious and rare jam.

So, I poked around the site and learned from the jam makers of We Love Jam that their tree is an endangered breed.

Once popular, and of superior flavor, the Blenheim is hardly ever found any more. Why? It doesn't keep well.

So, when I emailed to get on the waitlist (I love jam too!) I asked about seeds. Well, Eric and Phineas got right back to me and said they would be happy to mail me a seed, and seeds to anyone who wanted them. They would love to see the Blenheim make a resurgence.

Their tree is located in San Francisco, so, while I will attempt to start one at my new (and much sunnier office), I think all of you out on the Left Coast ought to write to these gentlemen and ask for a seed. Tell 'em Nicole from gala.ws told you about their jam and the seeds and you'd like one. Maybe get on the waitlist for jam, too ;)

Now, Right Coasters ought to try as well. According to Wikipedia, the apricot can withstand temperatures as low as -30F. However, that doesn't say if the Blenheim can, but it can't hurt to try. Especially if you have a nice southern facing wall to grow it against.

ETA: Eric & Phineas wrote this to me:

Our tree is actually in Santa Clara - the heart of Blenheim
territory. Apparently cold weather doesn't affect them in the winter, and they
love hot summers, but hate moisture.
