There are many garden design courses available out there with many different ways of teaching, learning and receiving the information you need to launch a successful garden design career.
At the London College of Garden Design we pride ourselves on delivering the one year Garden Design Diploma in a traditional learning environment where you can benefit from personal attention and the opportunities of working within a group of like-minded students. In an environment where you will be discussing and sharing visual design ideas it's important to us that you get regular face-to-face support. For example, on your studio days you'll benefit from the expertise of tutors who are always practicing professionals. A typical line up of tutors for a studio day will include a designer, landscape specialist and computer design tutor in the class, together and for the whole day. We make sure that you receive support from a number of tutors throughout your year with a wide range of experience to ensure you receive a rounded understanding of the landscape industry.
You will have the flexibility to work on projects outside of teaching days in your own time and at a time that suits you. Our tutors are available outside of these days via email to support you with any questions you have to develop your project. A student support area of our website will also provide you with downloadable lecture notes and resources such as model documents and planting information 24 hours a day. These are all available to you throughout your year with us. We also encourage our students to share ideas and work together towards the shared goal of becoming a professional garden designer.
We want you to make the right decision when you decide to train with us so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
