The Garden Design - QLS Level 3 Course is a positive step in taking control of how you can plan and create your garden. It could also be the first step towards a successful garden design business.
Garden designers need to be trained in the principles of design and in horticulture, and have an excellent knowledge and experience of using plants. Our distance learning Garden Design course will teach you about the Design Layout, considering elements such as paths, walls, landscape features, water features, sitting areas and decking.
The courses also cover information about the plants themselves, with consideration given to their horticultural requirements, their season-to-season appearance, lifespan, size, speed of growth, and combinations with other plants.
On successful completion of this course students will receive a QLS Level 3 Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards.
You will receive access to the course materials through an online portal for a 12-month period. Students can use the portal for accessing their course materials, submitting assignments and to log tutor questions. An optional hard-copy book version of the course notes can also be purchased for £35.00.
