While I myself am not accepting clients through this blog, I have numerous former students who are looking to establish themselves in the industry. From April through September I will be featuring a different designer every few weeks.
The students featured on this page have been through three levels of landscape design at the Calgary Zoo. Some have also been through the Master Gardener program and/or the DynaSCAPE (landscape design software) training program. They have varying degrees of experience – some are just starting out and some have a few designs under their belts already. What they have all shown me during the time I taught them, is a superior work ethic, a commitment to finding solid design solutions and the ability to think outside the proverbial box. And they always have access to me as a mentor and/or consultant on any project they take on.
If you live in the Calgary area, please consider giving one of these ‘fledgling’ designers an opportunity to work with you planning your outdoor project this season.
Shirley is a passionate gardener whether working in her own garden or helping friends create personal garden spaces.
After completing her Master Gardener Certificate, Landscape Design Level I, II and III, as well as the DynaSCAPE software training program (all at the Calgary Zoo), she has branched out with her own Landscape Design company, In The Zone (ITZ) Garden Design. As a graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design, Shirley brings artistic flair to both her designs and her drawings.
In her own words:
~ “I’d love to work with you to create a favourite getaway in your own back yard.” ~
