The training Course for Hard Landscaping
The training was done using our very well developed and detailed curriculum both through verbal and written communnication and “on the job” practical works. Our curriculum is tried, tested and works, any budding hard landscaper who undertakes one of our courses will complete the course fully adept in hard landscape design and installation. It also encompasses new technologies and methods because there are constant improvements in the landscaping field. Three modules were used in the training and it took a total of one month to complete the course. The first module deals with planning. Here the trainees are put through how to plan a project be it a residential or a commercial project. Planning involves a lot and determines what block paving and flagging will be done on the patio or driveway. What is the use of the surface to be worked on? What material or combinations of materials will be used on the project? What of the color? Planning also includes surveying the area to be worked on.
Hard Landscape Training Module 2
After the first module the second one involves preparing the bedding area where the block paving or flagging will be done. Preparation of the bed is really imperative because it determines how well the block paving will hold. It also determines how best the surface can handle the functions it is being meant for. For a driveway with heavy vehicles running on it the bedding has to be firm. There are two bedding methods taught in this module. One is the direct bedding method and the other is the indirect bedding method. The trainees are put through both methods in detail and by the end they can be able to determine what method best suits a project. The third module was on laying the flag or block paving. This is the last step that determines what the client and the public see of the project undertaken. Here the trainees are put through how to lay the blocks, patterns to use, how to joint and so much more.
