GARDEN DESIGN WORKSHOP

GARDEN DESIGN WORKSHOP

 

Fleur is a qualified landscape designer assisting clients in the Canberra region to create beautiful and functional gardens. Fleur recognises that many garden owners are already effective gardeners, but would love to learn more about how to improve the layout, structure and sustainability of their gardens.

This interactive workshop provides inspiration for those keen to lead their own garden design journey. Fleur will guide you through design techniques and ideas including a garden tour to demonstrate practical applications. You will come away with ideas, confidence and tools to draw and build your own gardens or to just better appreciate garden design.

These workshops will appeal to a broad range of participants: including the home owner needing some prompts for their garden design project, the interested gardener or those just looking for a unique workshop or shared experience with friends in a lovely garden.

Each participant will receive a workbook with notes, pictures and sketches that capture the key points. Morning tea and lunch will be served in the garden under the shady arbour.
