Learn How to Design Your Own Garden
Day One WorkshopThe first workshop covers the basic measuring required to plot your existing garden on paper. We will also produce a 'wish list' and there will be a wide selection of hard landscaping materials for you to study. We will also discuss garden styling and your own personal taste. We will spend some time outside using various practical exercises to ensure you are able to complete measuring your own garden successfully.
HomeworkYou will be equipped with the techniques to fully measure and plot your house and existing garden on paper to bring with you ready for workshop two.
Day Two WorkshopThe second day starts in the studio discussing basic design principals and designing using scale, proportion and functionality. I will fully assist and support you in drawing up your design. We will then spend some time discussing construction costs and costings.
Your Completed DesignAt the end of the second workshop YOU will have created a concept plan using design principles that gives your garden a 'designed' feel. Any good landscaper will be able to build your garden from your own design.
What Does it Cost?The cost of a workshop is £190; therefore a two day Course costs £380. The price includes tea, coffee, cake and biscuits; please bring your own lunch.
