Swedish Academy of Garden Design

Online Distance Learning Course in Swedish Garden Design

Scandinavian design emerged during the 1950’s in Sweden and the surrounding nordic countries. It is a movement characterised by simplicity, minimalism and functionality, yet you are still able to recreate wilderness, the homely feel of grandma’s flower bed’s and a productive vegetable garden.

Before deciding how a garden will look there are many practical issues you first have to consider based on the type of space you have to work with. This course is a comprehensive step by step guide to planning a garden using established standards that are the foundation of Swedish garden design. Bear in mind there is still plenty of room for your own personal expression in the final result.

This course is aimed at gardeners looking for new knowledge and inspiration in this exciting area of garden design.

Most importantly, we share your passion!
