Discover how you can apply basic design principles to your own garden by following the interactive topics. Whether you are starting afresh with a blank canvas, or looking to achieve a traditional cottage garden style, you will learn how to bring mystery, journey and surprise to your own space.
Explore the gardens that you produced during the interactive topics in 3D, using the latest Shockwave technology. You will need the free plugin, which is available from the Macromedia website.
Whether you are looking to design a new garden from scratch, or if you simply want to take a fresh approach to re-designing an existing garden, the Virtual garden offers a user-friendly source of inspiration. And you don't even have to get your hands dirty.
You will start in plan view by marking out your garden perimeters, flowerbeds, lawns, patios and garden fixtures.
You can then view your progress in 3D at any time during the design process. If you are not happy with the results, simply go back to plan view and edit your garden further.
You can save up to ten gardens and come back to them later. Once you have finished you can print out your list of plants to take to the garden centre or nursery.
