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.

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.
