Garden design is a specialist focus within the landscape architecture profession that is based on a sound creative, technical and scientific understanding of the landscape and its associated disciplines. This programme aims to provide an interdisciplinary course integrating the creativity of art and design with advanced plant knowledge, garden theories and technologies. It tends to occupy the smaller scale spectrum of landscape architecture projects and its practitioners are characterised by a strong creative attitude to garden making through the arts. Garden design is both a well-established professional activity and an academic subject.
