Garden Design (Level 3)



Everyone wants to maintain a healthy and vibrant garden, and this exciting course will teach you the fundamental elements of garden design. An ideal choice for anyone with an interest in gardening or the drive to start a gardening business, the Garden Design course covers essential techniques and style elements, and even lets you in on some of the tricks of the trade!


Spread across a number of highly practical and interesting units, the Garden Design course will give you a solid grounding in professional garden design.

But why choose garden design? There are many reasons. Professional garden design is as much an art as it is a science, and can be therapeutic, stimulating and positively inspirational. And whether you want to plan a simple pathway or a large patio, varying degrees of planning and logistical skills are required. You need to select the right materials and quantities, as well as understand how to utilise available space to ensure perfect results. This course will ensure your proficiency and success in all of these areas.

You’ll learn how to become a master in the garden, with the critical eye, insights and knowledge required to plan your approach, source the correct materials and execute ideas and plans flawlessly. Whether it’s a humble fence, a greenhouse, a play area or a barbecue, you’ll open up fantastic new possibilities for yourself in the spaces you work on. You’ll even learn about lighting, water features, flowerbeds, sheds and maintenance in this comprehensive course.

Whether you want to study the Garden Design course to help you complete your dream project, or to give you the insights required to start a part-time business, we welcome your application.
