Design your Dream Garden
You too can have the garden you dream of if you join us on this 6 week design course.
An ideal introduction for those who want to improve their outside space, of whatever size, but are not sure where to begin. Informal and relaxed, the essentials of design, form and function will be explained and de-mystified. You'll learn how to accurately measure your plot, identify the soil type and ph levels, draw to scale and much more. Design principles will be covered with lots of "how to" thrown in.
You'll get plenty of ideas and resources to help you draw up a working plan for your new dream garden. Lots of planting suggestions, PowerPoint presentations and "fail safe" planting lists will be given during the course.
