Testimonial from C. of Oakham:
I have recently completed Garden Design coaching with Amanda, as I would like to redesign my own garden. Her sessions will give you all the basic skills and knowledge you need for Garden Design whether it is from the initial planning, measuring and drawing stages right up to completion. Amanda has vast knowledge of plants and practical gardening. Inbetween each session I was required to do my own research on various topics, including plants. Amanda supplies you with a template requiring you to complete the required criteria on plants. This gives you the knowledge to recognise the importance of planting the right plant in the right place. I will be using this format when I plan and plant up my new garden making sure I make the right choices. She also gave me a recommended reading list so I have bought some excellent books, which will come in handy. In particular, I enjoyed the research I had to do of other Garden Designers and managed to visit some of their gardens, so I was able to see visually the different styles.
I would highly recommend Amanda for Garden Design coaching. She put a lot of work into making sure I gained the knowledge I was looking for and was always available if I needed help. Now all I have to do is put all this knowledge into practise!
