Designer Resources

I want to send out a big congratulations to Chris Heiler over at Landscape Leadership for recently completing his book for landscape pros.  He set an aggressive goal to get this written and ready for all of us – completing it in just a few short months – and he achieved it.

If you don’t know about Landscape Leadership , you ought to check it out.  Chris is a wealth of knowledge about building a successful design business and he is sharing his own knowledge as well as that of lots of other successful pros.

Also, Chris has a few exciting events coming up — I have added them to the Studio ‘g’ calendar, but here is a quick run down.

Chis and Andrew at Land8 Lounge are hosting a webinar on Thursday, January 7th, called CAD Showcase 2010.  Its free and you can participate from the comfort of your own home or office. Three of the top CAD software companies will be demonstrating their software and it is a great was  for you to  compare the benefits of each.  These will not be “sales” driven presentations.  The companies participating are Vectorworks, DynaSCAPE and Land F/X.
You can get more information about the event by reading the press release here and you can sign up here.

In January, Chris is also scheduling a teleseminar with Jody Shilan.  The topics will be based on the results of this survey.  If you are interested (the last one like this had over 400 attendees) fill out the survey and watch at for more details about the date and time. (and I will add them to the calendar too when they are available)

Hi, I'm Rochelle 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, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and 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.

    “…crush your competition” doesn’t. on the face of it, sound terribly friendly!
    Surely the joy of being a Gardener is that one does not have to stamp on people.
    We’re gardeners, not bankers or estate agents.

    Thanks for posting Rochelle. I always appreciate the help.

    I appreciate the comment James, it’s not the first like it. “Separate yourself from the competition” didn’t sound quite as good as “crush”. It’s more about separating yourself and being different.
