Designing Gardens 20 Hours Certificate Course

Designing Gardens 20 Hours online Course. Create the garden of your dreams by gaining the knowledge and skills taught in this course, which you can take over a couple of weeks, or even as a project for the weekend. Garden design can be challenging, but rewarding and Designing Gardens will help you to tap into your creativity, by making the right plant choices and other crucial elements to designing that "perfect garden".

This course may only take approximately 20 hours to complete, but you will find it comprehensive and informative and it can be the difference between the success and failure of your garden design project.

Each lesson will provide you with a way of expanding your knowledge in the subject and you will be able to choose the suggested tasks, that interest you the most. And by reading the notes presented alongside the "learn more" options, you won't miss anything that you feel is personally important to you.

"Fantastic Teacher. Well organised modules. Assignments force me to learn and research more so I can prepare well for exams. I really enjoyed studying via ADL.  I can now continue study at Ulster University which accept my certificate from ADL".    Level 4,  Advanced Certificate in Applied Science,  VSC001,  Stanislawa,  Poland.

Its with great pleasure I am announcing you my new job as 'Park Manager' for a 5 star hotel in Reunion Island.  Its definitely my courses with ADL (Botany, Agronomy and Trees for Rehabilitation) which were decisive for my nomination. Accordingly, my sincere thanks goes to all the ADL team.

"The course was a valuable learning experience as it provided me with the knowledge and understanding for me as a Careers Advisor. The feedback was very good from my tutor, and allowed me to  build upon my assignments that were marked. The comments were very informative  and very useful. Well written course material."  Andrew W, Careers  Counselling, UK
