Set in stunning landscaped grounds around an original 17th century manor house, Reaseheath has a perfect setting for studying designed landscapes. Our formal areas contain specialist plant collections including the national collection of Enkianthus and have a range of contrasting garden styles.
Many spectacular historic gardens are within easy reach of our location in the heart of Cheshire and through our industry partnerships, we have developed strong links with The National Trust within the region and beyond.
Garden designers and landscape managers are inspired by beautiful surroundings. They create innovative designs and manage green space that provide sustainable environments for wildlife and for people.
We have a reputation for producing high quality garden designers and landscape managers, with students entering their designs for shows and events such as the RHS Tatton Flower Show, resulting in innovative medal winning designs. Our students have won 2 Best in Show, 4 Gold, 8 Silver Gilt and 4 Silver awards over the last 10 years for their RHS medal winning show gardens.
We also use real projects to help students develop relevant professional skills and we have worked with a range of professional organisations including Groundwork Cheshire, Tatton Garden Society, Dorothy Clive Gardens, the National Trust, private heritage gardens and local authorities to develop designs and landscape management plans.
Students will have access to a range of facilities including dedicated design studios equipped with CAD software including VectorWorks and AutoCAD and GIS systems including DigiMap and AutoCAD Map 3D and Google SketchU, with use of the landscaped grounds for inspiration.
Taught by our highly skilled staff, students develop the relevant skills and practical experience, alongside the required professional and commercial business skills.
