Garden and Site Visits

This year there will be an emphasis on visits to designed landscapes during their construction where the student can discover first hand the relationship between the contractor, client and designer. This is a new addition to the course to help the student gain an insight into the real ‘on site’ issues and how they are addressed by the designer.

Visits will also take place to local nurseries and manufacturing outlets so that a greater knowledge of where different landscape elements come from and how they can be used within the landscape industry. Visits in the past have included stone quarries, brick yards, garden furniture makers and glasshouse manufacturers.

Part of the course includes creative installations were students explore the excitement of making art within the landscape. This takes the form of spending a day in either woodland, coastal or open countryside.

Optional visits to important gardens such as Sheffield Park, Wakehurst Place and Nymans are scheduled into the timetable.
