It’s important that you get the right advice when starting out on a garden design course. We’ve structured our Garden Design Program to give the best entry into our profession. Not only do we teach garden design in our program, but we study planting design and construction detailing through lectures and within assessed projects to give you a well-rounded understanding of design processes.
