Do you have a flair for design and would enjoy seeing an idea in your head forming into reality by adding those vital finishing touches that can really make a space come to life? Garden designers are creative, imaginative and artistic. They also need to be disciplined, organised and skilled business people. Combining knowledge with aesthetic vision, garden designers work with clients and other design professionals to develop design solutions that are safe, functional, attractive and meet the needs of the people using the space.
