KLC Part Time Garden Diploma

In January, KLC welcomed a large number of individuals to begin their garden studies on KLC’s Part Time Diploma Garden Design. The KLC Garden Design Diploma is a uniquely tailored course designed to prepare students for a career in the garden design industry. The one-year course combines practical hard landscaping and gardening skills, plant science and creative design principles.

The course started with a busy schedule filled with a number of inspirational guest speakers, Hampton Court Palace horticultural lessons and practical studio lectures.

The Garden Design Diploma students successfully completed their first project site visit of a fantastic river fronted property to survey and analyse. It is a valuable experience for students to deal with real life clients and briefs during their studies as it provides great industry experience and confidence.  This formed part of their Project 2 work which was presented to KLC’s senior academic team. It was an extremely impressive level of work and detail after only being on the course for 12 weeks.

KLC Principal, Jenny Gibbs, had the following feedback to give, “I was so impressed by what the Garden Diploma students had achieved in their second project this year.  The designs and planting plans they submitted for a site leading down to the river from a Modernist house showed that they had really risen to the challenge of creating an outdoor living and entertaining space for a big family making the most of the river views.  Visually exciting and varied the students explained and justified their ideas with confidence and professionalism which hugely impressed their actor clients.”
