The HNC introduces you to the many facets of garden design which include design, plant knowledge, hard landscaping and business studies. During the year, you will design gardens for real clients and develop hands-on horticultural knowledge. Employment opportunities with HNC include working for landscape companies and horticultural enterprises, often providing design input into their projects. Some students with previous relevant experience go straight into designing gardens and setting up their own business, although they often come back to take more advanced HND modules.
