Design your own garden in the sky and make the most of your rooftops and balconies. A one to one experience.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
There is honestly nothing more gorgeous than a roof garden. You can bring the inside out (rugs, chairs, lamps), grow plants that wouldn’t put up a shoot in the average garden, create jungles, edible baskets or cottage heaven by planting up terracotta pots. Whatever you do, don’t let your roof or balcony become an afterthought. It’s all in the planning. In this workshop, you will learn how to get the basics in place.
In gardening once you have the structure the rest can adapt and develop year to year, even a balcony will benefit from a bit of pre-planning. Alyson has the green fingers needed to get you up and planting.
WHAT WILL I BE LEARNING?
During the one to one session you’ll learn how to plan, layout and plant with designer solutions. Draw a simple site plan to scale and create a beautiful mood board as a style guide for your choice of planting. You'll be creating at least one planting combination suitable for your site and brief and there will be container planting demonstrations.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
Please bring a printed selection of design ideas from magazines or the internet to your workshop with photos and measurements (Details on 'how to measure up' will be sent over a week before the workshop).
