The history of gardens is a fascinating subject, an essential study for those working in garden design and landscaping, but equally inspiring for the amateur or professional gardener.
Study the history of gardens. Understand how gardens have evolved over the centuries, and broaden your perspective on what is possible and appropriate in garden design today. Garden history will enlighten you, and vastly expand the scope of possibilities you have before you as a modern garden designer.
Lessons cover garden designers, great gardens and garderners of the world, private and public gardens, globilisation of gardens, scope and nature of modern garden conservation, the roles of organisations in garden conservation and much more.
As with all our courses, study papers are provided on a CD, in total involving approximately 100 hours of work. The course is divided into 8 lessons with an assignment set at the end of each. These are sent to the Academy for marking and are returned to you with comments and suggestions.
You will be working with Colin Elliott, an experienced professional horticulturist and garden designer.
