It is important to think about this early on, even while you are still studying, and stick with it. Get a logo, get a social media account and start posting on it.

The bulk of garden designers recommendations come through word of mouth, so get out there and start talking to people. Tell everyone you know what you are doing, join the SGD (Society of Garden Designers), join your local garden design group, meet landscapers, get their email addresses, and email them
