Garden design courses

Aims of the programme:

This course guides students through the first year of graduation, both with new and challenging projects, but also advice on the graduates’ first real-life projects.  The idea being to enable students to undertake the greater depth of research and experiment to a more advanced design level.  This enables students to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding which is vital during their first year of practice.  This course also allows students to specialise in one chosen area and to investigate this to greater detail.

  • Subject Overview

    Objectives

    To guide students through the first year of graduation, both with new and challenging projects, but also critique on the graduates’ first real-life projects.

    To enable the students to undertake the greater depth of research and experiment to a more advanced design level.

    To ensure that students receive and gain the skills, knowledge and understanding which is vital during their first year of practice.

    To enable students to specialise in one chosen area and to investigate this to greater detail.

  • Course Content

    The course will be broken down into 3 self-selected projects:

    Each project in turn will contain in depth design analysis including site specification, surveys and client briefs.

    Students will create an Inchbald standardised masterplan.

    Students will also produce fully specified detailed areas for each project to develop their awareness of hard landscaping materials and fixtures and fittings to a high degree of finish.

    Students will submit contractor ready sections, elevations and construction drawing for their detailed areas.

    Planting plans will also be explored for each project to advance their planting knowledge as well as developing individual style and personal areas of interest.

    3D visuals will be presented to fully support the designs and students will use computer-aided design as well as hand drawn images to create their drawings.

    For some projects students will be encouraged to create 3D models to assist the design process and design presentation.
