Course summary

With an HND in Garden Design, you will be well equipped with the knowledge and skills to enter the garden design profession. Many students with an HND go on to set up successful independent garden design businesses; some work with other garden designers in small companies, or for landscaping companies, or with consortia involving designers and other landscape professionals; others go on to further qualifications such as a garden and greenspace design or landscape architecture degree. This course develops your competence in the wide range of skills needed by practicing designers, including communication with clients and other professionals, and organising and managing design and construction projects. Upon successful completion of this course, students may apply to join year 3 of SRUC’s BSc/BSc (Hons) Garden and Greenspace Design.
