At CSGD we believe that you learn by doing.

You’ll be drafting the first day and working on real properties with real clients, working to meet their needs and expectations while learning the skills necessary to create professional and realistic designs.  Understanding the principles of hand drafting will strengthen your design skills and aid in the transition to using CAD should you choose to pursue this avenue of design.

No drafting experience?  No problem.  You’ll learn by doing!dahn 2







All design begins with your imagination, and we’ve found that using pencil and paper allows you to let your creativity flow freely while you learn the basics of garden design.  You’ll learn hand drafting and coloring by doing your projects on the drafting board as you build your confidence and skills.
