Garden Design Workshop – Winners

This could also be titled confessions of a garden designer…

WinnerGdnsI’ve slightly mucked up this workshop by ending up with more designs than we’ve time for!

Originally the garden design workshop was only meant to be 3 gardens but we’ve ended up with 4 (one of which has 2 designs) – don’t ask!

I want the workshop to be thorough, but also only about an hour long…

So here’s where I need your help!

Do I try to cram in all 5 designs into one workshop (which means it will be at least one and a half hours long or more)…

OR just focus on the 3 above and create a separate Small Garden Workshop at a later date for the left over garden?

This is the garden we’d cut for the time being…

Incidentally I wasn’t even planning on doing a Small Garden Workshop… so this wouldn’t happen immediately!

So do please leave your answers in the Facebook or WordPress comments below!

Do you want all 5 designs in a much longer workshop or keep it to 3 and about an hour long?

BTW WordPress asks for your email address to check you’re not a spammer – we don’t contact you, so no worries there!

The workshop will be FREE to view from 17th to 31st October

  1. Actually the runner up with its path right down the middle third of the garden is the most interesting to me. A structurally solid destination path sucking all thoughts out of a solution is just the thing to use to demonstrate courage and creativity. Show me now!

  2. If you feel that the quality of the video would be compromised by cramming all five into one, then nudge the 'two-piece' onto a later slot. It's not as though you'd be cutting it – merely deferring it to do justice to the garden.

  3. I think you should focus really well on 3 gardens and create a special small garden workshop in a couple of month’s time.

  4. I would prefer 2 workshops with more time devoted to each design rather than have one workshop with less time devoted to five designs.

  5. I would also prefer two workshops please.

  6. I think the 3 gardens. 5 seems too much to take in at once.

  7. I think you need to cover 3 gardens, with 5 gardens it's going to be less valuable information.

  8. My vote is 3 gardens in one go. With the other gardens a bit later.

  9. I do not really think I will be bored to watch your video even if two hours long or more, but maybe for your health and the quality of the work would be better to concentrate on fewer gardens?

  10. To be honest, and for the sake of aesthetics of the video, I wud do the small garden later. I really want to see the small garden though, so I will watch even if its 5 hours long. . . .. Love your shows.( and most people nowadays do end up with small gardens, which are hard to do after downsizing, when you've been used to lbigger space). Paula Sheerin

  11. Do the 3 gardens and save the tiny one for later.

  12. Just the three gardens. The others can be found slots later and how lucky they ALL are. Wish mine had been one to have been selected whenever you got round to it. Betty x

  13. Just 3 gardens. The small garden looks interesting though.

  14. I would prefer three gardens in depth please, with the other two at another time.

  15. In my opinion i think if you put all 5 designs in one video it will loose the depth of complete process of the designs and this would really be a shame! And please keep the ones of the small garden together with perhaps a couple of extra gardens for later in a seperat workshop.

  16. I agree with the consensus – concentrate on the original idea of 3 with good depth and detail. Then do the 4th one in its own video again in depth. Thank you. Looking forward to it

  17. The more information the better, go ahead with 5 gardens.

  18. I agree with Massimo D'Alessandro – I don't think I'd get bored watching a long design workshop from you, but for your own stress levels it sounds as if it could be important for you to focus on 3 and save the small garden for a later workshop

  19. I will watch no matter how long your videos are. I can also watch them more than once which make them better than a live class. However, I prefer more depth rather than more gardens.

  20. I would prefer if you did the 5 gardens option. This way we could benefit by seing "more" of how things should be done. Personally, I could not be bored while watching this, and those who could, should not be your target audience.
    Thank you very much!

  21. I would prefer 3 gardens and a shorter workshop. I would get more out of a shorter than a longer session unless it was spilit into 2 1 hour sessions.

  22. I think focus on the 3 gardens and do a special small garden workshop in a couple months. 🙂

  23. 3 is good for me

  24. I'd prefer three, though a smaller garden would be interesting.

  25. I suggest it would be better to cover all 5 garden designs individually in a more detailed video series. That way, people will be able to absorb every bit of information from each design with the freedom of watching the next design video in their own pace. And also I think, it would be better if your introductory/welcome video on this would show all the 5 designs and then focus on each one of the designs in the succeeding videos.

  26. From a selfish point of view I'd love to see the small garden design as that looks roughly the size of my garden – so with that in mind I'd say do all 5. And I'd be happy to sit through 2 hours of workshop. But I understand that's quite an ask… Love watching by the way and hope to have a 'before' and 'after' of my own one day..!
