The purpose of the course is for students to develop their knowledge and skills in design in the context of the horticultural engineer and to develop and test design ideas/designs based on different situations and also to relate them/it to future development and care, procurement and client relations.

Learning objectives
After completing the course the student will be able to
- develop and test design ideas/designs based on different situations and relate them to future development and maintenance. The emphasis is placed on the small scale, mainly gardens and small parks, but also glazed environments/the boundary between outdoor and indoor.
- propose a construction and maintenance plan that is relevant to the task.
- develop individual working methods and approaches to the work process, from time-planning and client contacts and tenders/procurement documents to information searches and the development of contact networks.


The course deals with assignments that touch on garden design in different ways. The design projects are linked to real-life or staged situations.

The tasks in the project course are given a clear link to practice by different people who are active in the area of garden design lecturing or participating in various ways in programme formulation, supervision, the seminar, etc. Another link to practice is achieved by the students working on real-life or staged projects with client contacts, client participation, etc.

The work is done in projects groups or individually. Because the groups inform one another regularly, project participants can also access experience from and knowledge about a larger number of problems and opportunities.

Deeper knowledge of garden design and important neighbouring areas of knowledge is communicated through recurring workshops/assignments over the course at which some product development also takes place. (Examples of workshops are a) time-planning and project design, b) client contacts and knowledge transfer, c) ideas and visions, d) design and adaptation to the place and situation, e) material selection, f) lighting, g) water in the garden, h) product development and i) construction and vegetation dynamics/care).

Reports and reasoning will focus especially on:
- knowledge of the existing place for the project
- motives for the proposed design
- the process and results of design work
- impact assessment of the proposed solution
- the potential of the garden for future development and care
