Landscape Design Workshops – Design your own garden

Seminar style workshops in which you work step-by-step with Robin Shafer completing your own garden design using a fun and affordable hands-on method.

Your garden design process consists of 10 hours over 4 sessions, where you will work directly on your plan, using Robin’s lifetime of experience and expertise to guide you through the decision-making processes.

The Process:

  1. Site Visit
    Robin will visit your property before the workshop starts so that she is familiar with your site and knows in advance what you would like to achieve.
  2. Design
    In the workshop environment, using your photos and measurements, you will learn the essentials of good garden design.
  3. Concept Sketch
    Finish with a scaled concept sketch of your own garden design, which will enable you to begin the process of laying out and building your dream garden.

Having a master plan is the first step to the attainment of your fabulous garden and your participation in the process will be intensely rewarding plus very affordable.
