Details

The aim of this 4 day course is to help you on the first steps to designing your own garden. We’ll look at how you can get to know the particular constraints of your own space, to develop ideas and an outline plan. We’ll then look at how you put that plan into action with practical sessions on how to approach construction and of course developing a planting design. This course is aimed at amateur gardeners who are keen to develop their own gardens. It will be classroom based and provide useful design tools and approaches for the amateur gardener. Some knowledge of garden
plants will be useful but not essential.
The course is run in collaboration with the London
College of Garden Design the leading training college
for professional garden design.
