            NGC Landscape Design Schools are a series of four courses offered in most states throughout the country. NGC Landscape Design School Course 4 will be offered  in January 2019.  With the successful completion of all four LDS courses, a Garden Club member earns the status of Active Landscape Design Consultant. The LDS courses do not have to be taken in order, so you may begin with Course 4 next January.  After the completion of two courses you may become a provisional member of LDCCSC.
