Landscape Design & Horticulture


Want to be the creative drive behind Singapore’s garden city? Or are you keen on starting your own home garden? If you have a love for nature and a flair for design, the Diploma in Landscape Design & Horticulture (LDH) will put you on the right track to develop and enrich Singapore’s green spaces. Combining landscape design, plant science and horticulture management, LDH is the only diploma-level course of its kind in Singapore. Thanks to our strong partnership with National Parks Board, much of your practical training, field training and outdoor lessons will take place at the Singapore Botanic Gardens and other parks.

In your first year, you will develop skills in landscape design and learn about urban ecology and conservation, as well as plant taxonomy. You will progress on to learn about horticulture, landscape management, plant physiology and breeding, and hardscape and softscape designs in your second year.

In your final year, you will get to go for a six-month internship that provides you with an opportunity to put your learning into practice in a work environment. You will also be able to undertake a project to apply your horticulture and plant science knowledge to develop innovative landscape designs or deepen your horticultural knowledge and skills.

In addition, this course will provide you with the opportunity to hone your horticultural and project management skills at the various parks and project sites in Singapore.
