landscaping II - materials

A natural progression from Landscaping I, but a self contained study unit in its own right, this 100 hour course concentrates on the detail of creating individual components in a landscape.

It is equally suitable for garden enthusiasts, garden designers and landscapers.

You learn to design and build such things as walls, rockeries, steps, ponds, & paving; and you develop skills to create specific effects in a garden.

As with all our courses, study papers are provided on a CD. The course is divided into 12 lessons with an assignment set at the end of each. These are sent to the Academy for marking and are returned to you with comments and suggestions.

You will be working with Colin Elliott, an experienced professional landscaper and a garden designer since 1990.
