COURSE DESCRIPTION

The plants men and women of today draw on a wonderful history of planting material, introductions and techniques in creating their own modern gardens. By making use of contemporary sources, we will examine the themes and design styles employed by the current generation of garden makers and their influence on landscapes and personal gardens in the twenty first century.

Topics to be covered:

Who is this course for?

Anyone interested in learning more about the making of the modern garden. This course aims to enable a broad understanding of the features of gardens, and to make garden visiting a much more enjoyable and informed pleasure.

Learning and Teaching

There will be lectures, case studies and group discussions.

Coursework and Assessment

To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.

The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
