PICKARD SCHOOL OF GARDEN DESIGN
Pickard School of Garden Design was founded by multi-award-winning designer and former Vice Chairman of the Society of Garden Designers Christopher Pickard more than 30 years ago. We have been running our flagship Diploma in Garden Design ever since, from our two easily accessible sites in Bristol and London. We are proud of our reputation for producing some of the country’s talented designers.
We pride ourselves on being friendly and informal, but strongly professional in emphasis. Career change is a serious business, and if you join us, we really do deliver what we promise – a sound knowledge of the theory and practice of garden design, planting design, construction, project management and the skills needed to run and promote a design business for profit. It’s a steep learning curve and our students work hard, but it’s rewarding and enjoyable.
