This course is primarily aimed at people involved in the Landscaping sector who are looking to develop their practical skills and landscape design knowledge.
The course will be offered by the Teagasc College of Amenity Horticulture National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin; over a 16 week period commencing in early January until the end of June 2021. The module will be delivered through a blended learning model where design studio and assessments occur online, with practical sessions being facilitated at our Teagasc, Ashtown site. A structured timetable allows learners to plan their time, accommodating their current position within the landscaping sector.

course include the construction of walls, water and timber features.
