Landscape Design Student Project Application for the Pacific Horticulture College

Each year, PHC students work with members of The Horticulture Centre of the Pacific and the public who are willing to offer their properties as landscape design student projects.

If your property is chosen, three or four PHC students will be assigned to your property to consult, design and present their individual designs to the property owners. Please note that the project does not include the actual installation of a design in your garden.

The Landscape Design Instructor will review all applications and will contact the short-listed properties to set up an appointment to visit the property first hand around the end of June or beginning of July 2017.

Please read through the following points carefully to see if your property fits our criteria:

  • Your property is within the Greater Victoria Area (excluding Sooke and Metchosin) from Pacific Horticulture College
  • We are looking for average sized properties with the need for a backyard (and possible) side yard design. The size and the complexity of the property need to be suitable for a student project.
  • You are available for consultation during late August – November. The successful design process requires communication between client and designer and your absence would make this impossible.
  • You are willing to make a $400 donation to the PHC Student Bursary Fund (a tax receipt will be issued for this donation).

Thank you for your time and consideration! If you are interested in applying for this project, please fill out this Landscape Design Application 2017 and email or drop it off at Pacific Horticulture College/HCP by June 24, 2017.
