Look at and record the physical features on the property. Acquire a site plan of the property from either the school board or the school archives.
What do you want to achieve? What do the students want? Identify any constraints or changes needed to meet your objectives.
Prepare a landscape plan with the students and teachers to ensure that the results are a team effort and everyone learns from the process.
