FREE online garden design workshop – what next?

It’s been a while since we’ve last hosted one our FREE online garden design workshops, so we’re thinking of putting together another one in the very near future…


So, what would you like us to do for you?

Let us know which workshop you’d like by casting your vote below:

Please note: we’ve already done LONG gardens and PLANTING schemes! Which is why they are not in the list below.

If you’re new to Successful Garden Design:

The KEY to creating a fantastic garden is how you arrange (design) the space within it.  We teach a formula (series of success shortcuts) which makes designing your garden easy…

Different shape gardens require you to do different things in order to look good. Eg. wide gardens need to made to look longer etc.

So that’s why we are mostly asking what shape garden you have for the upcoming workshop. Each formula we teach is shape specific, not size or location (doesn’t matter where in the world you are).

Please note: the workshops are only available to view for FREE for the first 2 weeks – after that it’s paid access only, so make SURE you don’t miss them when they are free!

  4. Hi Adrian – I've just added you to the list – you should receive a welcome email soon!

  5. I have a standard semi-detached house with a standard rectangular garden. You get to the garden via a side door on the house. The problem is the side return has always felt like dead space. A corridor to the garden.

    I'd love some ideas for how to make it more a part of the garden. Is it best to leave it open so you see all the way to the end of the garden. Or should I curve it at the end of the house so it reveals less of the garden initially and then you see more as you come round a bend?

  6. Hi Joules,
    Thank you for letting us know. If you have any questions – please let us know.
