Garden Design Level 1 Certificate



At Shipley College, our Garden Design Level 1 course is a 10-week programme that provides a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of garden design. This course is perfect for those who are passionate about gardening and landscaping, and want to develop essential skills for creating beautiful garden spaces.

You will learn how to plan and produce garden sketches and designs, specify plants, and develop planting plans, as well as have the opportunity to complete a garden design project. To gain the absolute maximum from your studies, it is expected you will complete your garden design sketchbook away from college - with personalised guidance and feedback provided on your creative work by your expert teachers.

This course is perfect for individuals who want to design their own garden space, as well as those who are interested in pursuing a career in garden design or landscaping. Upon completion of this course, you can progress onto Garden Design Level 2 or enrol on a Practical Horticulture course.

Assessment is through a portfolio of evidence, including assignment and project work. Join us at Shipley College and take the first step towards a fulfilling career in the world of garden design!
