Landscape Architects need to be confident in their ideas, the materials that they choose and the designs they create in order to deliver successful results in reality. Wildflower spaces are becoming more popular over time but, as with any other living growing environment, they are not easy to create from scratch without knowledge and experience.
As pioneers within wildflower landscapes, we have packaged up our expertise into CPD (Continued Professional Development) training. Our free presentations aim to improve the knowledge of Landscape Architects when it comes to designing and specifying wildflower environments within their plans. Attendance to our presentations can be put towards required CPD hours and earn you a personalised certificate
Outline CPD content
Overall we cover most of the core topics that underpin choosing wildflowers for a particular site or design, the site conditions, layout, supply, installation and maintenance. Where appropriate, we can tailor our CPD presentations to individual Landscape Architect practices, taking into account any live projects they might be drawing up specifications for.
Typical topics covered:
> Introduction of Wildflower Turf Ltd including our exemplar projects – Olympics etc.
> Products and specification codes – Turf, Species Rich, Bespoke, Roof, Meadowscape Pro, Bulbs
> Site-specific requirements
> Best practice installation techniques
> Sustainable maintenance requirements
> Advantages of our products over direct seeding
> Long term cost savings i.e. preparation, installation, maintenance
> Understanding and managing contractor relationships
> Design opportunities
> Legislation and regulation
> Pollution mitigation (work in progress)
