Landscaping Courses in Guildford, Surrey
Demand is growing for beautifully landscaped outdoor areas for business and leisure, creating more jobs for dedicated and talented landscapers. Landscaping is physical, hard work, but it's also rewarding and creative. We will teach you the practical skills you'll need to make it in the industry, including building with hard materials and working with plants and turf.
Practical work is carried out on the College estate and in our dedicated landscaping workshops. You will benefit from specialist instruction in the use of stone, brick, concrete and timber, and machinery such as dumpers, excavators and rotary cultivators.
We have over 40 years of experience in teaching landscaping, delivered by tutors with expert knowledge and strong industry links including the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI).
