"The Garden Design Pyramid: Levels of importance for establishing a beautiful landscape."
Do you ever wonder why your garden never look like the photographs in the magazine? It is most likely an issue of design. Professor Christopher Tuccio developed the garden design pyramid as a tool, intended for professionals and home-garden enthusiasts alike who wish to better understand the important elements of design within the landscape and utilize them to create robust, beautiful, and diverse environments.
Christopher Tuccio is Associate Professor and Program Coordinator of the Horticulture & Landscape Design degrees at the Naugatuck Valley Community College. He is a graduate of Harvard University with a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture in Urban Design, specializing in the cultural landscapes of China & Japan. He also holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Landscape Architecture from Cornell University. Professor Tuccio has worked as a landscape designer for Sasaki Associates in Watertown, MA and Balmori Associates in New York City. He has previously served on the Executive Committee of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Connecticut Chapter and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the CT Horticulture Society. In 2016, he was awarded the CT Board of Regents System-Wide Award for Scholarly Excellence.
