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 it right every time. And that is what I will teach you.

I'm Rochelle

Establish A Master Plan That will Guide you to your Dream Garden

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:

lifetime access! 


That’s right, you can retake the course as many times as you’d like for FREE. Gardens are enduring (and I hate saying goodbye), so likewise - being part of the P+V Boot Camp Community is a FOREVER thing. You will have access to all lessons, past and future live Q&A sessions and the forum for as long as the program is in existence.  

THIS IS A VERY INTERACTIVE COURSE!

Every spring and fall (starting in February and September) there will be weekly live Q&A sessions (8 sessions per year) and the community comes together to intensively swap ideas, share their projects and help each other out.   

During these times, there will be many opportunities to ask me your questions (literally, it is like hiring a designer without actually hiring a designer - except, yeah, I am professional designer...).




How Are Classes Taught?

The entire program is based online so you can participate from home, work or anywhere in the world... and at hours that suit you (night owls, early birds and PJ's welcome!). 

Class is taught with a mix of video, screencasts, audio recordings, written lessons and downloadable reference guides and worksheets.

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.

So yes, THERE IS HOMEWORK.  Of course there is (seriously, you must get your hands dirty to make a garden). 
  
The homework will get you practicing what you are learning and designing your own garden. Most students say that one of the best things about boot camp is sharing their homework in the forums and seeing the plans and ideas of fellow students. It is not only inspiring and motivating, but it helps us connect with each other and it allows me to give you the expert advice you need for your specific project. 

And also, who doesn't like to snoop on other people's gardens? 

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. 

Do I Need Any Special Class Materials?

YES! THERE ARE ARE SOME THINGS YOU WILL NEED. BELOW IS A QUICK RUNDOWN.

• 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 USD.

Which class is right for you?

Garden Design Boot Camp teaches you how to establish a Master Plan for your garden. For example, where do all the things go? (paths, patios, play areas, party areas, pools, sheds, coops, specialty gardens, etc) And how do they work together?
Generally this is about the overall design. You will learn how to start, and how to make sure everything has a place and works together cohesively. This class is perfect if you have a blank slate or a garden that needs an overhaul or complete re-think. 

After the Garden Design Boot Camp you will likely find that you want to follow-up with Planting Design Boot Camp. 
In this course, we take the next step in the design process and you learn how to create stunning individual planting schemes that will not only empower you to shop the nursery like a boss, but will make your garden the prettiest and most successful on the block.
