Now that our Wildflower group has chosen the design the next step is plotting it onto the land. Since our lot size had increased we needed to figure out how to map out the design in a way that was easy, legible and sturdy enough to withstand stomping, wheel barrels and rainfall. Our plotting option involved simple materials: STAKES and STRING! First, we made our own stakes out of scrap wood we were able to find at the Lebel Building (School of Visual Arts). Next, we headed over to the EcoHouse to start putting the stakes in the ground. We determined where all the stakes needed to be by figuring out each spot where lines intersected and ended. The final step was to tie the string to the stakes,creating a map of the design lightly floating above the land. Once this was done, the Wildflower group got really excited…it really felt like everything was coming together.
