Hey there, I’m Dave. I’m a hard working, professional landscape designer in Virginia, so most days you can find me in my studio or out on the jobsite. I’m known for creating beautiful, functional outdoor spaces, and having fun while doing it. My passion is helping people fall in love with their landscape. You can see what I do here.
About the Landscape Design Lab
Whether you’re a homeowner looking to make your own property amazing or a landscape professional wanting to get better with every project, I want to teach you what I’ve learned in over 20 years as a landscape designer. I looked at a lot of online landscape design courses before setting this up. Here’s why I think Landscape Design Lab is the best.
A practical curriculum
Lesson one is going to be like day one of working in my studio, and each lesson builds on that. Instead of spending entire units on theory and esoteric knowledge, you’ll have a new practical skill after each lesson. The design theory and the relevant history is woven throughout the course, and you’ll see how it all comes together.
Detailed course materials
Each lesson is taught via a video presentation that includes lecture and real world examples. The video is accompanied by a PDF workbook for that unit that provides additional detail about the topic, as well as assignments that allow you to apply what you’ve learned.
You choose how you learn best
What will help you complete the course? I offer two options. You can just purchase the course itself and work through the lessons at your own pace, without review. Or, you can upgrade to the full package, in which you send me your assignments for review and critique. This way we can do what works best for your budget and your learning style.
Along with access to the lesson materials, you’ll also receive access to the Landscape Design Lab private Facebook group. It’s an opportunity to get feedback from me and from other students, all at different points in the course (and in their careers).
