We will take you through all the factors you have to consider to make a small space dynamic throughout the year; from different garden styles and hard landscaping materials to plant use, water features and lighting. You'll learn how to take a client brief, analyse a site and survey a garden. You'll then work towards producing a scaled working master plan which you'll be able to put into action at the course's end. Short talks about aspects of design and planting will also be provided throughout the course, which will help to inform your planning and individual project development. Please bring with you photographs and simple measurements (length/width/any existing structures) of how your garden currently looks.
You'll have a greater understanding of what you need to consider when designing an outside space, as well as how to achieve a successful garden design. You'll take away a concept plan of your garden project, including ideas for hard and soft landscaping. You'll also have developed a simple site survey, an outline planting plan and a concept plan with hard-landscape elements. You may consider going on to join other garden or planting design courses.
