Do you have a garden that needs a facelift?  Do you want professional advice before you start the process?

This course will teach you how to design your own garden over 4 weeks through a series of workshops which will cover everything from basic site surveying and inspiring ideas, to planting design, paving materials, and budgeting. By incorporating sustainable design principles like permaculture, water harvesting, and reuse of existing materials, you can get your garden working FOR you, and save time and money in the process.

Each workshop will provide practical information as well studio time to work on your garden design. The course culminates in a 1.5 hour Individual Design Consultation with a Landscape Architect (course instructor).
