What Will You Learn?

The Gardening and Landscape Design Business Diploma Course is designed to take you from beginner to professional, with in-depth information and practical advice that covers everything from gardening techniques and how to design and landscape a garden, to how to set up a business and gain clients.

This accredited course takes you through the basics of gardening and landscaping; from the process of designing, the equipment you’ll need, and how measure and price up work, to how to manage your finances for your business.

From this solid base each module will talk more in-depth about specific areas. These guide students through how to choose customers, the different types of landscaping (including how to create low-maintenance and vegetable/herb gardens), and how to plan and design green areas. This online Landscape Gardening Course teaches about various types of plants and what makes a great soil, and also covers additional information useful to the landscape gardener, such as how to lay patios and fences.

Rounding out the Landscape and Gardening Business Course is a full module on how to set up and market your business, as well as providing information on insurance and tax. The course concludes with a module focussed on the important area of health and safety and a final overview of all the topics covered in the course.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
