A course that focuses on how to take cues from the landscape that you are designing, to help you create a garden which is unique and personal to that space. The course will be workshop based with a number of design sessions, and the opportunity to focus on a full garden and planting design. We will look at inspirational gardens and discuss why they have worked in that particular setting, and use the same techniques to design our own space. You can work on your own garden project or a supplied plan. Please bring an image of a garden you like, to discuss with the group during the first session.
