Self Paced 20-hour course to help you understand more about garden

Sneak Peek

Creating a beautiful garden is a very rewarding task! Gardens tend to improve people's mood and, consequently, their quality of life.

With this course, you will learn a broad range of material used in surfacing of different gardens; how to use structural features such as arches, pergolas and pavilions; what to plant and how to maintain plants in confined spaces; what kind of water features can be applied in the landscaping projects, and what kind of adjustments and construction are needed to create different aesthetic effects.

Our 20 hour courses are self paced and will help you understand a topic in a short amount of time. You can work through the course when you like- test yourself with mini-tests along the way. There are extra case studies or research you can undertake if you would really like to get into the topic. Once you have completed the lessons and self assessment tasks, there is a final exam undertaken online- you can then download your personalised certificate.
