In the courses, which start in the new year, Gregory and others will impart their experience of achieving stress free landscape projects – gained under some of the toughest conditions in the business.

Gregory, who is also chair of the Association of Professional Landscapers and a college director, said: "The easiest way to get stressed is when a project fails to live up to expectations so we have invited some of the leaders in the field of design and landscape to tell us how they do it and give us their top tips for running successful projects."

The courses run over three evenings in central London to ensure that busy professionals can come at the end of the day, relax and hear how others achieve effective costing, communication without confusion and project quality.

Gregory added: "One of the hardest tasks for any designer is to get the costing of a project right. Whether it’s maximising their own fees and income or giving accurate guideline budgets when selling their services."

Trainers include Jason Lock of Deakin Lock, Dan Riddlestone and John Wyer of Bowles & Wyer, Ann-Marie Powell of Ann-Marie Powell Gardens, Patricia Fox of Aralia and Olivia Kirk of Olivia Kirk Garden and KKE Architects.
