Garden Design Course

Rachel1Plants are not the answer! Plants aren’t enough to create a great garden. Plants are the finishing touch not the starting point…

Most people make the mistake of focusing on plants and not enough on design – creating a great garden is all about shape and how different elements work together.

So If Plants Aren’t The Key To A Great Garden What Is?

In a word SHAPE. How you shape the elements in your garden like your patio, deck, lawn and planting borders are ESSENTIAL to creating a stunning garden. Unless you get the shapes right first, it doesn’t matter how nice your plants look, your garden will always look disjointed and will never look as good as you want it to.

I’m Rachel Mathews and I’ve been an international garden designer for over 20 years. In that time, I’ve transformed every conceivable shape, style and size of garden from rolling acres to the tiniest of courtyards.

When I first learned garden design I found the process difficult. Despite the formal training, qualifications and all the books I read, there didn’t seem to be a simple formula to follow. So, after many years of struggling, I developed my own formula that allowed me to design any size, shape or style of garden, quickly and easily (shame they didn’t teach that at college, it would have saved me years of hard work!)…

What Shape Is Your Garden?

Every garden is different. Some are long and narrow, others are wide, small, large, square, the list goes on. This is what can make designing your garden difficult. Long, narrow gardens for instance need to be made to look wider and with points of interest throughout in order to look really good.

Over the years I discovered that each type of garden has a set of things that needs to be done in order to achieve a successful design. Certain design shapes are effective for different types of garden.

For example, in the garden plan featured below you’ll see the shapes used have made this small garden look much bigger. The trick is to use the right shapes for your garden and requirements.

I passionately believe that the ‘average’ garden can and should be so much more than average, which is why in 2009 I went on a teacher training course so that I could effectively teach my design formula to others.

The formula I’ve created makes it easy for anyone to transform any type of garden.
