This two part workshop gives you the tools to anaylise your site, create a baseplan, design the layout of your garden and begin selecting plants that will suit your site and your taste. 

Many people get overwhelmed when they look at their block of land and try to come up with a coherent plan for their garden. By understanding the basics of how to approach both your site and the process of design you will feel more confident and clear about how to create your perfect garden.
