Designing your own personal garden
This four-day course will guide you on the first steps to designing your own garden.
About the course
During this four-day course you'll learn how to recognise the particular constraints of your own space, and how to develop ideas and an outline plan. We'll then explore how to put that plan into action with practical sessions on approaching construction and developing a planting design.
Week 1: Getting to know your garden
Week 2: Developing a plan
Week 3: Detailing and building your garden
Week 4: Planting for your new garden
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. Some knowledge of garden plants will be useful but not essential.
This course is run in collaboration with the London College of Garden Design, the leading training college for professional garden design.
