Take cre­ativ­ity out in gar­den

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LEARNING - Janita Singh

LAND­SCAPE de­sign­ers are creative peo­ple who love the out­doors, of­ten work­ing to turn a bland space into some­thing breath­tak­ing.

Peo­ple work­ing in this job also need to be knowl­edge­able about plants and land­scap­ing pro­ce­dures.

TAFE NSW’s Diploma of Land­scape De­sign teaches stu­dents ways to trans­form ideas into achiev­able land­scape and gar­den de­signs.

Stu­dents are taught the prin­ci­ples of hor­ti­cul­ture, de­sign and how to de­liver a suc­cess­ful project.

Stu­dents learn about as­sess­ing, de­sign­ing and pre­par­ing projects in­clud­ing pro­duc­ing com­put­eraided draw­ings and business pro­cesses such as quot­ing, ten­der­ing and pre­par­ing con­tracts.

Land­scape de­sign­ers may work with other land­scape ser­vice pro­fes­sion­als/ com­pa­nies, prop­erty de­vel­op­ers or be self-em­ployed.

This is an in­dus­try where pas­sion and ded­i­ca­tion pay off. For more de­tails: tafensw.edu.au

Land­scape de­sign­ers can help peo­ple turn a bland space into a gor­geous gar­den.
