12 weeks - online learning with an evening class once a week and assessments completed online.

Landscape Design combines elements of art and science to create a functional, aesthetically pleasing extension of indoor living to the outdoors. One purpose of landscape design is to blend houses or buildings into the natural surroundings. To work toward a desirable landscape design, the landscape horticulturist must have a working knowledge of design principles and plants.
This programme aims to provide students with the know-how to undertake a range of landscape design activities and associated operations within the horticultural sector at an entry tradesperson level. It is comprised of two modules that include unit standards at Level 3 and Level 4. You will gain skills and knowledge that will prepare you for employment in the horticultural industry, specifically landscape design.
Intakes are 12 weeks long.
