HNC/ HND Garden & Landscape Design

Level 4 • Full-time • Eden Project


Based in specialist facilities at Cornwall’s Eden Project this programme is designed for those with an emerging passion for garden and landscape design. It will enable you to pursue a career within this creative industry and will also appeal to those who wish to gain a deeper understanding of garden and landscape design for more holistic reasons. The programme integrates the creativity of art and design with a core understanding of horticulture, earth sciences and landscape technology. We recognise the world of garden and landscape design is diverse so you will work together with a specialist teaching team to reflect the need for graduates to have a wide range of skills. This team includes award-winning garden designers, artists, landscape architects, design historians and horticulturalists all of which combine private practice alongside their teaching commitments and have significant industry experience. Students under the tutelage of the current team have won numerous awards including the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Young Designer of the Year, three times in the last five years, and the Society of Garden Designers (SGD) Student Designer of the Year Award, three times in the past six years, latest awarded to recent HND graduate Jo Midwinter in 2015. Through real or ‘live’ projects during the course you will learn how to create stimulating and thought-provoking spaces in a variety of locations – from private gardens to public landscapes – whilst at the same time developing your own unique design identity and philosophy. Clients students have worked with recently include Truro Cathedral, The Pengersick Castle Trust, The Eden Project, The Leonard Cheshire Disability Trust and the Potager Garden. In the second year, particular emphasis is placed upon professional practice, design communication and user-focused design. Alongside subject specialists you will study how to progress design concepts and ideas related to contemporary user group themes such as design for the elderly, health and well-being, therapy and social inclusion.
