Without Hiring A Landscape Designer

garden design boot camp

Does this sound like you?

You long to have a drool-worthy garden that is the envy of the neighborhood…but you have no idea how to make it happen.

Despite your best efforts, your garden feels cluttered and disorganized rather than peaceful.
You go to the garden center for mulch – but end up with 8 mismatched plants (because they were so pretty)…and you have no idea where to put them...

More than once, you’ve found yourself moving plants…standing back and looking and then moving again. In other words, you were NOT working from a design plan.

You’re frustrated because your individual plants look great…they just don’t look great TOGETHER. Or maybe they don't even look great at all.
You want to know the secret to transforming your garden space into the garden of your dreams.

Wherever you live and whatever your style, I will help you confidently create a garden that works and is a reflection of you.

Garden designer, writer, entrepreneur, TV host and creator of the award winning publication PITH + VIGOR. 
I've been making gardens my whole life - professionally for over 18 years. But it wasn't until I'd been practicing design for many years that I evolved repeatable strategies that make it much easier to get right every time. And that is what I will teach you.

I'm Rochelle

In Garden Design Boot Camp You Will:

- andie

“I have learned so much from this course. I love the concept of developing your garden style so that it become the guide for everything that is used. I look at my garden with a new eye.”

in Washington

- sally

“Making the base plan and taking the measurements made me realize the true shape and scale of my plot which is much longer than thought.”

in Southern England

- sandy

“Ha ha - without this course I would be stalled for sure! To say I am inspired is an understatement!”

kinds words from past students:

Friday September 13th, 2019 - Sunday October 13th, 2019

The Details

Lessons will be posted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the course. There will be 4 live sessions (tentatively on Saturday 09/21/19, 09/28/19, 10/05/19 and 10/12/19) where students can join a live cast to get all their questions answered. These will be recorded in case you miss them and want to watch them at another time.
You will also have opportunities to submit questions ahead of the live events. (All students are welcome and encouraged to ask questions specific to their projects... this is your opportunity to get free professional design advice!)

Course Materials will take you 2-3 hours per week to review. Homework (which is optional - but highly encouraged to take full advantage of the class) will take additional time. The homework is all about creating a master plan for your garden. Students who complete the homework by the last live session are eligible for a student-only contest. One contest winner will be awarded a free 5o minute one-on-one consultation with Rochelle Greayer to review and provide feedback on their personal plans, answer questions and refine their individual project (valued at $99).

How Are Classes Taught?

All the course materials will be available online for you to access on your own schedule. After the course ends, the lessons in the course remain online in your student library indefinitely. Your access to the online lessons will remain online and so long as you keep track of your log in details and you can refer back to lessons whenever you want. 

This class will be taught with a mix of video, screencasts, audio recordings, written lessons and downloadable reference guides and worksheets. In addition to being online, all materials can be downloaded and saved offline for personal use.

No previous design or gardening experience is required, however in order to fully participate in the homework you must have a real life garden that you will be designing.

Garden Design Boot Camp teaches students how to establish a Master Plan (for example, usage areas, paths, patios, and generally, the overall design). This class is perfect for those with a blank slate or with a garden that needs an overhaul or complete re-think. After this class you will likely find that you want to follow-up with Planting Design Boot Camp which takes the next step in the design process and teaches how to create stunning planting schemes that will make your garden the prettiest and most successful on the block.

Each lesson will be presented by video and will be broken down into subtopics. Lessons will also include homework allowing you to practice what you learned on your own garden project. Homework will be shared within the online classroom area so that fellow students can encourage each other, and gain inspiration.

At the end of the course you will have a strong understanding of your own garden, its limitations (and how to deal with them) and its possibilities as well as a conceptual vision for the new design and the ability to draw up your own master plan.

Do I Need Any Special Class Materials?

YES! THERE ARE ARE SOME THINGS YOU WILL NEED. BELOW IS A QUICK RUNDOWN, BUT I'LL SEND THIS TO YOU IN AN EMAIL WITH EASY LINKS FOR WHERE TO GET THE BEST MATERIALS AS SOON AS YOUR REGISTRATION IS RECEIVED.

• Graph paper - I recommend 11" x 17" or A3 paper.
• Tracing Paper - I prefer a roll, but you can also buy sheets. I'll send you a link to where to buy.
• A simple circle template and a drawing triangle - These are optional - but very useful.
• Pencils and a camera (your phone camera is perfect).
• A long tape measure or other measuring device - we will talk about options in the class. (there are also apps for this that I will share). 
• You will also need to create a free account on a 3rd party app. Details will be sent after registration. 

After you register, you will receive a welcome email that will also include links to where to get apps and supplies. All in, if you don't have any of this (excluding the camera), you can expect the materials to cost about $25.

The Two Very Best Things About This Class...



There will be many opportunities to ask me questions (literally, it is like hiring a designer without actually hiring a designer - except that I am professional designer...).  

All of our live sessions are via video call so we can speak face to face and share our ideas.  (don't worry, you don't have to get out of you PJ's if you don't want... you can turn the video off). 

I schedule an hour, but it is often longer - because I answer every question from every student. Whatever your issue - we will resolve it!
 
And if you miss a live session - no worries - you can submit questions in advance and watch the video playback later. 

Past students agree - the two best things about my Boot Camp classes are the Shared Homework and the Live Q&A Sessions.



But it also helps students connect with each other and it allows me to give you the expert advice you need for your specific project.  

Past students report that their favorite thing was being able to see everyone else's projects. 

I mean, who doesn't like to snoop on other people's gardens? Especially when sometimes they are right next door? 

Fellow students could literally be your neighbors, but they might also be on the other side of the world.  Either way, you will have many opportunities to meet, make friends, and learn from each other. 


Sharing our projects is inspiring and motivating.
