Landscape Garden Design

A Distance Learning Course of 8 Lessons
 
Course Description
 

Do you watch the TV gardening programmes and wonder how you could be as diverse as the presenters are with the different garden designs they come up with? Our course in Landscaping will provide you with the skills to set you on this road to success.

The course aims to develop a solid understanding of the principles and procedures underlying the design and development of garden areas. The subject is relevant to both public and private landscaping and equally of value in developing home gardens or public parks. Though consideration is given to both design and construction, the emphasis throughout the course is landscape design itself.
