Landscape Design School

The National Garden Clubs (NGC) Landscape Design School (LDS) offers a series of four 10-hour courses covering the history of landscape design as well as instruction from landscape architects in a variety of design techniques used in home and municipal settings.

Since its founding in 1958, professional instructors have maintained the high standards originally incorporated in the study program. Also offered are many optional programs, such as conferences, symposia and tours. Students acquire the tools for making their own gardens more beautiful and easier to maintain, and can become NGC-certified Landscape Design Consultants. Many students have been motivated to serve in political decision-making areas where awareness of the impact of a well-designed landscape can enhance the beauty and enjoyment of life in the public arena.

The next course is Series 2 Course 3.

October 31 & November 1, 2020

In conjunction with the Maricopa County Master Gardeners, the Arizona Federation of Garden Clubs will hold NGC Landscape Design School Series 2 Course 3 on the weekend of October 31 and November 1.

In response to social distancing guidelines recommended by the State of Arizona, this course will be conducted in a live video format via Zoom. Attendees will be emailed a link to log into the live course via their desktop computers or mobile devices.  For the first time ever, you can take this course from the comfort of your own home!

Attendees who wish to become certified as a National Garden Club Landscape Design Consultant must take the exam offered at the end of each course; other attendees may skip the exam. You do NOT have to be a member of an NGC garden club or the Maricopa County Master Gardeners to attend the LDS school. It is available to anyone who wishes to learn landscape design.
