Overview

The Glyndŵr Certificate in Garden Design teaches awareness and appreciation of garden design, helping you to analyse, evaluate and communicate your design skills.

You will learn about the evolution of styles and the history of garden design alongside the balance between functional, technical and aesthetic elements. The course establishes the overarching principles of garden design, incorporating the core elements of scale, form, light, texture and colour.

Course content

You will explore the development of ideas and methods of visual communication, learning to consider and communicate your responses to clients’ requirements.

Lectures and studio-based learning introduce the skills required to approach the design of a residential garden. Interactive studio discussions facilitate the exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences. You will complete a design scheme with full notes, keys, schedules and specifications, providing creative opportunity and skills building. You will learn to evaluate and categorise information alongside the regulatory procedures, technical references and the specification of materials. A written, reflective assignment concludes the course.
