Ecology of Landscape Design

A landscaper is now a very popular and highly demanded profession. Landscape design is not simply a modern trend, but also a well perceived necessity to live in harmony with the environment. This necessity has proceeded from an intensive and rushing way of life, social isolation, total computerization and urbanization. Therefore, it becomes naturally for people to leave their tiring and fussy urban life and to return to natural grounds, even though it is a small courtyard or a private land plot.

Well planned landscape design would enable to combine leisure and handcrafts, strengthen positive life energy and improve health and vital forces.

We teach our students not only how to rightly place and layout elements of landscape design, but we also help to understand the diversity of landscaping and architectural styles and to better use modern elements of land decoration. Experienced ecologists and landscapers will teach you and show you on practice what elements are most typical for a Japanese-garden philosophy and what of them are needless, what is the difference between an urban and the country styles. Training courses include not only theoretical sessions, but also workshops, excursions and practical outdoor activities.

Best lecturers of leading Samara universities, professional landscapers, designers and botanic practitioners are engaged to the educational process.

The course duration is two months. Sessions are held twice a week from 18.00 p.m. till 21.00 p.m. that is very convenient for working people.

At the end of the courses our students shall defend a final paper – a pilot landscape design project. After that they will receive a state-recognized certificate of a professional landscaper.

Many of our graduates have been employed by local landscaping companies. Some of them have successfully established their own businesses in landscape and garden beautifying. Many people learn landscaping to implement their ideas on their own garden-plots.

We are very proud of our students. Our trainers provide deep knowledge on landscaping and assist to develop skills and capabilities.
