Garden Needed to Design for Upcoming Workshop (it’s FREE!)

The FREE garden design workshop will be happening very soon (Saturday 16th March to be precise). To re-cap, this free event is online, so you can join in wherever you are in the world and watch a garden being designed from start to finish.

There will also be an opportunity to ask me any garden design questions you may have at the end. If you’re not able to make it on the day, video replays will be available for a few days after the event.

Here’s Where You Can Get Your Garden Designed for FREE!

However, before we can do the workshop, I’m going to need a garden to design!

How about yours?

Ideally, I’m looking for a back garden to design. It can be in any state, from dreadful, to not quite looking as you’d hoped! You can enter via Facebook at the FREE GARDEN DESIGN tab on the Successful Garden Design page.

How to Enter Your Garden

All you have to do is upload one picture of your garden, taken from the house looking down to the end of the garden onto the Successful Garden Design Facebook page. Please note: these kind of Facebook pages can take a moment or two to load, so be patient! You’ll need to click ‘Like’ at the top of the page to be taken to the photograph uploa

Entries need to be in by the end of February (that’s Thursday 28th) so you only have a week or so to enter. I will then choose three possible candidates and get the lovely people on Facebook to vote for the garden they’d like to see designed during the workshop.

The winning garden will be designed to your tastes, location and style you want to achieve. Basically, you’ll be getting a free design worth over £700 (approx $1100 USD) and you can sit and watch it being designed on the day.

Once the workshop is over I will email you the plan so you can get on and build your dream garden. Or have someone else build it for you. The plan will be to scale so a landscaper will be able to work from it.


The garden design workshop is a very public event, so please do not send any images you don’t want the world to see!

By sending me photos of your garden you are giving me full permission to use that image and your garden in the workshop and any promotions either side of it which will feature on social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter as well as this website, plus associated websites and who knows, maybe even magazine articles too.

So, what are you waiting for? Get entering your garden already! Good luck and please tell everyone you know about the workshop – the aim behind all this is to show people there is an easy way to a great looking garden, that doesn’t cost the earth.
