What's On

 Design or Revamp the Smaller Garden

Wednesday 6th July - Thursday 7th July

2-day Workshop plus an introductory Zoom call.

This workshop is for those of you with relatively small outdoor spaces – from tiny courtyards to gardens up to 20 metres x 14 metres, whether in the town or the country.  Ideal too if you’re planning to redesign or revamp part of a larger garden.

Our aim is to inspire you to create a really beautiful outdoor space.  The focus will be on both hard landscaping and the planting.  You will be based at the Garden House with the garden, plants, structural elements and materials used, as part of our key resources.

We will visit a smaller, (local), beautifully designed and planted garden, as another inspiration, during the course.

You will have the chance to use up-to-date books/materials and other resources to ignite your imagination for both refining your design and using interesting plants.  We will give you an inspiration list of gardens and designers to borrow ideas from, places to visit, nurseries to use and places to source materials.

You will learn how to:

·      Optimise the space

·      Hone your ideas to create a harmonious and balanced design

·      Plan a garden that is pleasing throughout the year

·      Assess your site and draw up a scale plan

·      Put your ideas into practice

Cost: £245 to include lunch each day, coffee/tea and cake!

Dates: Zoom call time TBC (approx one week ahead), Course runs 6 and 7 July at 10am to 4pm.  

BOOK ONLINE NOW. If you are unable to pay online, please contact us to find out about alternative ways of paying.  Places are limited so do contact us as soon as possible

Location: The Garden House, 5 Warleigh Road, Brighton BN1 4NT

**COVID update:  As the Garden House studio is a relatively small space and for the safety of all, we have reduced the number of participants in our workshops.  We would also prefer participants to have had double/triple vaccinations, or to have taken a Lateral Flow Test before joining the group (we have some available if needed).  Thank you for your understanding.
