Description

Landscape design is an art, a craft and a science. A true landscape designer should be proficient in all three aspects. This landscape design course is a foray into the fascinating world of gardens, from plant science to the art of creating a green oasis. The course is addressed to those who are passionate about botany and horticulture, as well as to those who want to pursue a career in the field.

Module II of the Landscape Design Course is addressed to students passionate about landscaping, with experience in the field, who want to deepen the knowledge gained so far and maybe turn it into a business idea.

Diana Codrean, the tutor of the Landscape Design Course, also held a summer school program at Cembra this year, on garden design. You can find more details about it here.

The approach will include both manual and digital techniques, while the course covers essential information regarding the main topic – landscape design – but also related to other areas of interest (marketing, business, ecology, legislation, architecture).
