It's good for designers to get hands on experience with landscaping. Knowing how and what to design so something can be built by a good landscaping firm is essential. So, in the last few weeks I've been helping Gardenmakers (http://www.the-gardenmakers.co.uk/) out in a couple of gardens near Stratford upon Avon. The gardens won't be finished until the new year but a lot has gone on already including clearing, levelling, paving, fencing, wall building. Check out my facebook page for photos.
