The SGD runs a number of events throughout the year which are open to both non-members and members alike.


SGD Symposium

As the SGD celebrates 40 years of garden and landscape design, this two-day symposium held at the new Hilltop Building, RHS Garden Wisley, will examine the past, cast a critical eye on current practice, and propose new ways of working together to address the rapidly changing demands of people and planet to help develop an industry leading approach to sustainable garden design.



SGD CPD Days are organised by the SGD and cover a range of topics; aimed at garden designers who wish to develop their skillset.


Visit the SGD Awards pages to not only see which designers took home prestigious prizes from the last Awards, but to also find out all about attending and entering the next Awards and much more.






The inspirational SGD Conferences are held twice a year in Spring and Autumn in Central London, featuring internationally renowned speakers.
