Learn to make a master plan for your gardenStart from scratch and learn how to create a professional master plan for your own dream garden. 


Do you have an outdoor space but no idea what to make of it?


Are you tired of bare earth, overgrown areas, and missing a potential garden or outdoor living room?  Do you feel like you have no idea where to start?


I will help you end the overwhelm and make a plan.


As a professional designer I've helped countless clients make sense of what to do with their outdoor areas for over 18 years and I can help you too.


Garden Design Boot Camp is the DIY alternative to hiring a garden designer.  In this course, I'll walk you through the same process that I use as a designer to establish a long term design plan for a home garden or yard.


Landscaping is expensive and hiring in help isn't always in the budget. Or maybe you just want to learn the basics of garden design. Either way this course will walk you through the technical side as well as the creative and inspirational side of creating a master plan for your garden.


At the end you will have an overall plan for your outdoor living space that you can use to start breaking out smaller projects to tackle or that you can use to get help from construction professionals. 


Having a beautiful and high functioning garden area is a wonderful addition and investment in your quality of life as well as your property's value - so it is worth the effort to do it right.


We will explore what you need, what your land can provide, and how your garden can expand your living space and serve your lifestyle. I will show you how to measure and assess your garden and inspire your creativity as we set out and create a beautiful layout that matches your house and your personal style.


It may sound like a lot (and it is) but don't worry - I'll be right there to help you along and answer all your questions along the way. 


There are a million things to consider when setting out to create a garden and outdoor living area but the first step is to establish a master plan and that is what Garden Design Boot Camp will help you achieve.

Create Beautiful Planting Schemes & a Stunning Garden Without Wasting Your Time & Money on the Wrong Plants.


Planting Design Boot Camp is an online training designed to take you by the hand and walk you step by step through the world of planting design.


Figuring out what to plant, where to plant it, and how to design a cohesive and beautiful garden area is intimidating if you've never done it before.


It looks hard and complicated, and there is so much to know. Often it is hard to know how to even begin? Or maybe you've tried before and had some mis-steps (who wants to do that again?).


But fear not! Planting Design Boot Camp is your secret weapon.


Transform from a timid fearful gardener to a confident artist who paints with plants (ok, that is a bit hyperbolic, but it sounds so romantic and inspired doesn't it?).


But seriously, I will give you all the tools and a straightforward system to transform your empty (or weed-filled, or mish-mashed messy) planting beds into a cohesive garden.


It doesn't matter if you don't know many (or any) plants.  It doesn't matter if you are design challenged and it doesn't matter if you've never even gardened before. We cover it all and you will graduate with a plan that you can use to go shopping for plants that you love and that will thrive in your garden.  (Actually, we go over successful plant shopping and installing too).


You deserve a beautiful garden that is a beautiful reflection of you - and this class will help you choose the plants you need to create your special outdoor place.


This course runs a few times a year.

Your Teacher

Hi, I'm Rochelle Greayer and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher.

I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.  After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series was launched in early 2018.

Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and now Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
