Below is a list of the various courses that will typically suit anyone wanting to garden for their own pleasure and increase their investment in their home, as well as for those who would like an introduction into the gardening industry as a career.
Premier Garden Design & Maintenance Course
'Garden design' is the first step in landscaping. You cannot landscape a garden until you have designed it and, for that, you need to understand (a) how to organise spaces so that they meet your needs or that of your client, and (b) the environment to which it is attached.

Plant Identification Course
This course is designed to take your plant knowledge one step further by equipping you to be able to place different plants into their larger families by learning to recognise similar characteristics within those families which will make identification that much easier.
Business Skills for the Green Industry
The Quoting System
In an industry that deals with a visual and living art form such as garden design and landscaping, it is easy to become so engrossed in beautifying a space that you forget about the many costs you incur while running your business to derive a decent salary each month on which to live.
