About the course

During this four-day course 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.
