Overview

The Inchbald Diploma Garden Design provides students with a solid foundation from which they may embark on a fulfilling and successful career.

For all lengths of study, students acquire a rounded skills set. Teaching is delivered by professional designers who develop students' understanding of design as it relates to the garden, enabling them to acquire spatial awareness and develop up to the minute visualisation skills, both manual and computer aided design (CAD) based. Students develop a comprehensive portfolio of designs of varying complexity during the course.

Course content

The course is made up of six modules: Design, Design Analysis, Graphics, Planting Design, Construction, and Business.

The design module enables the student to apply theory to live projects, whilst design analysis explores the current and proposed use of a site along with the wider context, surroundings and demographic criteria. Graphics provides an intensive introduction to the principles of drawing, which are then developed across a range of design exercises, introducing various techniques and software packages. A research project directs students to explore the plant kingdom in microcosm, teaching the design application of plants as three-dimensional masses. Construction facilitates exploration of the artistic, decorative, technical and practical aspects of hard landscaping. Detailed lectures develop students' problem solving skills whilst the final business module prepares them for working as a professional garden designer.

Who is it aimed at?

Students exploring garden design as a professional vocation.
