Learn to Design Gardens

Good garden design is a mixture of learnt practical skills, an awareness of form and space, knowledge of what can be achieved with particular plants and materials, and some natural talent.  If you want to be successful as a designer the hard work starts here.  

Up-skill your knowledge by learning the basics of design and an understanding of principles like proportion, repetition, contrast and harmony through to different styles of garden. Nurture your knowledge of plants and their needs so you can recognise the significance of positioning in the landscape. Find out how to go from gathering site information to producing drawn designs and estimating costs.
