Well, I did it. I completed the UBC Garden Design program. Actually, the final course finished a week before the wedding, but the graduation ceremony and Open House were held just this weekend. Regardless, I’m done, and I’m glad I did it.
When I started the program, I wasn’t sure what the end result would be. I still don’t know, for instance, whether I will end up being a full-time landscape designer. But I wanted to increase my knowledge, competency, and credibility as a garden writer, plus, I figured, it couldn’t be bad for my garden either.

I’m happy to say that I’ve already been asked to design two gardens – and this even before graduation! So we’ll see how those guinea pig gardens go, but I’m confident enough to announce, “Heavy Petal Landscape Design is open for business!”

That’s awesome Andrea – congratulations. Are you going to blog the outcome of these two that you’ve been offered already?
Thanks! I’m pretty stoked, too. And yep, I’ll be sharing the results – once I have something to show you!

Best of luck to you! I hope that you can make it work for you in whatever you decide to do.
