Garden Design Diploma
Collection of 12 courses
The Introduction to Garden Design online course is taught by expert garden designers Hilary Thomas and Alison Worster. The course will take you through all the basics of garden design, theory and practice.
Garden design is all about organising and shaping spaces and it covers many different elements.
You'll learn about each stage of garden design starting with assessing the site, the soil and the surroundings; how to measure the site and draw up a site survey plan to understand the advantages and restraints of the site.
You'll go through the briefing process from requirements to resources, and then onto the garden design process, experimenting with different patterns, creating positive and negative spaces (or mass and void or planting and features) which will give the garden its character. And you'll learn how to transfer your designs onto a grid and make scale drawings.
Finally you'll look at using hard landscaping and features (including pergolas, paths, sheds and water features. As well as planting including hedges and trees.
At the end of the course you should have the skills that will enable you to design your own or someone else’s garden.
