Garden Design Course – Afternoon

September 9, 2014 @ 1:30 pm - 3:45 pm


This seven session course will give you the basic skills, knowledge and ideas to design or alter your own garden, and will run on Tuesdays in September and October. The cost for all seven sessions is £95, and anyone on the course will be able to book a place on Phillipa Probert’s talk on September 20th at half price. By the end of the course you will know how to draw a plan and planting for at least one bed (or more if wanted), have a good idea of materials and costs for hard landscaping and plan a schedule of work. The seven sessions cover:

  • Surveying and making a site plan
  • Measuring the garden and making a scale drawing
  • Looking at different ‘styles’ of gardening and deciding which you would like – creating a mood board
  • Choosing and arranging suitable plants for the garden – structure, texture and colour, maintenance and future management
  • Considering hard landscaping ideas; structure, paving and patios, fencing, lighting, water, containers and ornaments

There will be a two week interval between sessions, to give time for consideration about your needs. Week seven will be an extra session where any final research, questions can be brought to Fieldcrest. This garden design course will start on Tuesday, September 9th at 1.30 – 3.45, and run every other week from then on (September 23rd, October 7th, October 21st, November 4th, November 18th, December 2nd). There is also the option to do this course in the evening.

This course is open to everyone and no prior knowledge or skills are needed, although some basic gardening knowledge would be useful. If you would like to know more or discuss whether it would be suitable for you, call Christine on 0151 334 8878
