I'm trying to enroll for the Plant Pathology Course and the Planning Layout And Construction Of Ornamental Gardens course. The enroll now button is not working for the Planning Layout and Construction of Ornamental Gardens course though. I have selected my Study Option, Learning Materials and Pay in Full. I'd like to pay for these courses while the Black Friday sale is on. I live in Canada so I am 8 hours behind. Can you please help? - Monica
Thank you for getting in touch. There is a definite problem with the enrol now button for this course. Our support team will be emailing you an enrolment form to get over this problem and will ensure you get the Black Friday offer. Our apologies for the problem you have been experiencing.
If you prefer to enrol on line, you can do so by enrolling for an alternative certificate course of the same value and put in the comments that this is the course you wish to take (there only appears to be n issue on the button for this course.) I will also inform the support team and they will switch you to the correct course. We are of course looking into why people can't enrol on the course, but the solution may take a little time, so this is probably the best, but not ideal option to circumvent the problem.
I hope this helps.

UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES OF PLANNING AND EXECUTING LANDSCAPE DESIGNS FOR ORNAMENTAL GARDENS
This is a great course for landscape consultants, garden designers, horticultural advisors, project managers, or anyone else who works with landscapes and needs to improve their ability to survey, evaluate and plan development work on a site.
Every site has a unique set of micro climatic and soil conditions. Other factors such as the site’s exposure to traffic, pests and disease, will also be unique. All of these things are relatively uncontrollable; although the way the landscape is designed will impact on these characteristics as well.
Planting large plants can modify existing microclimates by buffering temperature fluctuations, changing light intensities etc.
Changing contours can alter soil temperatures, soil moisture, exposure to light, as well as drainage patterns, etc.
Treatments of surfaces can change drainage characteristics, soil conditions,
Buildings, drainage pipes, services (electricity, gas etc)can be affected by the nature and type of landscape treatment
Some styles of landscape are going to cause greater changes to a landscape than others.
