Course Information

This is a great course for landscape consultants, garden designers, horticultural advisors, project managers, or anyone else who works with landscapes and needs to improve their ability to survey, evaluate and plan development work on a site. 

Every site has a unique set of micro climatic and soil conditions. Other factors such as the site’s exposure to traffic, pests and disease, will also be unique. All of these things are relatively uncontrollable; although the way the landscape is designed will impact on these characteristics as well.

Examples:

 

  • Planting large plants can modify existing microclimates by buffering temperature fluctuations, changing light intensities etc.

  • Changing contours can alter soil temperatures, soil moisture, exposure to light, as well as drainage patterns, etc.

  • Treatments of surfaces can change drainage characteristics, soil conditions,

  • Buildings, drainage pipes, services (electricity, gas etc)can be affected by the nature and type of landscape treatment

  • Some styles of landscape are going to cause greater changes to a landscape than others.

There are 10 lessons in this course:

Site Appraisal, Interpretation and Risk Assessment Preparing Site Plans and Specifications

Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school's tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.

  • Influence of Site Characteristics
  • The Use of Hard Landscape Features
  • Setting out a Site to Scale Plans and Drawings

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
