Những điều bạn sẽ làm

We'll meet in our own home garden situated in the bushland suburb of Bilgola Plateau on Sydney's beautiful Northern Beaches. We'll dive right into the Garden Design process, looking at examples and discussing the following:

*Understanding your garden style [or helping you find what you might like!]
*Understanding your site: existing vegetation, ecosystems, soil, micro-climate influences, services, orientation, access, functional needs.
* Design principles:
Form, line, proportion, scale, colour, texture, rhythm, harmony, contrast, axis, focal points, framing.
Neuroscience of design: prospect, refuge, mystery, risk [the best bit in my humble opinion!]
*Bringing it together:
Plant & materials selection, construction considerations, maintenance.

Yes, it sounds like a lot, but we'll focus on the bits that most interest you and that will give you the confidence to design your own patch. We'll be as hands-on as possible and I always try to fit in a fun potting activity which demonstrates the intriguing way our brains react so beneficially to engaging with nature.

We'll have morning tea and spend time wandering through our own rather wild garden where I have been practicing many of the topics we've discussed. This is what makes this garden design experience unique: sharing our failures & successes and learning about the simple design tactics that make all the difference.

Leigh: I'm a Landscape Architect with more than 30 years' experience in creating wonderful landscapes and also teaching others how to become landscape designers through the renowned Ryde TAFE School of Landscape Design. I've also been teaching individuals how to design their own gardens through community college courses and small group workshops in my own home garden. I love to help people learn and am just a little besotted with plants and gardens! My special interest is in therapeutic horticulture.
Phillip: is my husband :) and a practicing psychologist with a special interest in neuroscience and the benefits of nature connection on mental health. Whilst I run the garden design content the Workshop, Phillip adds this special knowledge of how our brains benefit from gardens...it's fascinating and inspiring!

Nơi bạn sẽ đến

Our workshop is in our own comfortable home, at an informal around-the-table setting, and outside in our garden, located in the beautiful Northern Beaches. Having taught landscape design, construction and plant selection for many years, I want to ensure your experience provides you with the solutions and valuable insights you can apply to your own garden, so inside talking and sketching, or outside exploring the garden - the mix is upto you!

Leigh and Philip were warm and welcoming. We especially enjoyed wandering around the beautiful garden and learning about the design principles for landscape architecture. It gave us a sense of what was possible. Leigh shared her ideas for our own garden spaces, with suggestions of appropriate plant species and numbers. We were treated to a delicious lunch and coffee. We highly recommend this interesting and informative workshop.

I had a great afternoon with Leigh and Phillip and I learnt so much. Their wealth of knowledge and their willingness to share it is inspirational. The science behind how the mind works and why it needs nature was my favourite part. I highly recommend this to everyone, no matter your gardening skill level. I left with a new respect for the natural world around us and some great ideas for my existing garden to make it even better. Keep up the great work Leigh and Phillip and I hope to see you again some day.

Leigh and Phillip gave us a warm welcome when we arrived for the "Secrets of the Garden" experience and made us feel right at home the whole time. They are both passionate about what they do and were able to marry the two together to provide this awesome experience. I expected to learn a couple of things and I was looking forward to creating my own garden but I walked away with so much more! I can't recommend this experience enough! Leigh and Phillip were both motivational and inspirational. It will get you thinking and in the right ways :) If that's not enough, the afternoon tea is delicious!!
