Modern, awkward shape garden design – Wolfgang’s garden

I’m very pleased to be featuring Wolfgang’s garden in this week’s SGD Student Hall of Fame. Wolfgang lives in Germany and this is the garden he had to contend with once the house was completed!

Yikes! What to do with a garden like this?

Firstly: LEARN ABOUT GARDEN DESIGN (if you’re going to DIY).

The best way, and of course I would say this, is to buy an online garden design course! Specifically The Great Garden Formula – which is exactly what Wolfgang did.

He tried various different designs as he progressed through the course, the first one we show in the video he’s kindly created showing us around his design.

Video Tour of Wolfgang’s Design

I really love the metal panel sections in between the hedging, that you can see in the video – think I might have to ‘borrow’ that idea! And thank goodness Wolfgang came to my rescue with navigating on SketchUp!

The Construction Process

Wolfgang had NO previous garden design experience before doing the course and he has painstakingly built the entire garden, virtually single-handedly, in his spare time!

Progress has been slow, but I think you’ll agree, all his time and effort has paid off handsomely. We look forward to seeing how the garden looks when it’s finished.

On Completion

The garden should look like this once it’s complete.

Want to learn to DIY design your garden?

If you’d like to do the online training course Wolfgang did – the Great Garden Formula online course.* You can find out more details about that here: http://successfulgardendesigncourses.com/great-garden-formula/iPad-GGF-courses-300x163

* Please note: we don’t train students how to use CAD or Sketchup, our methods teach how to sketch out ideas by hand – but some people prefer to use a computer – either way, it’s the design principles that are important, not how you implement them!

The Great Garden Formula is our flagship course and it teaches you everything you need to know about design and is geared towards people who might want to design gardens professionally or for professionals who want to increase their skills.

We have a variety of other courses that are smaller – you can see them here: https://www.successfulgardendesign.com/courses/

  1. Wow, to have an eye for that design with nothing but mounds of dirt to start with is nothing short of amazing. How long do you expect the full construction process to take? And how long did it take Wolfgang to complete those renderings?

    Cheers!
