So you want to sort the garden out? The first thing that many people do is to call a landscaper.  They describe in words what they want to the landscaper. The landscaper builds what’s in their mind.  It’s not the same as what you had in mind.

 

This happens all the time.  All that needed is a scale drawing.  You only need some basic tools to survey your garden and produce a plan.

 

In the course I’ll teach you how to think about proportions both practically and aesthetically.  I’ll teach you how to design your garden like it’s an artistic composition. You don’t need to a full garden design course, you just need the basics to start, so don’t be overwhelmed!

 

I’ll teach you how to take a survey of your garden so that you can accurately plot it on paper.  The measurements of your subsequent design can then be accurately built in your garden without any surprises.

 

I’ll show you how you can have a design put together in a short space of time without too steep of a learning curve.  I’ll also go through some design disasters I’ve seen so many times and how you can avoid them.
