After purchasing access to Design Your Own Landscape Layout, you will receive 3 years (1,095 days) access to the core course materials, which includes approximately 10 hours of video content, and at least 8 printable pdfs. These core course materials are “on-demand” or “evergreen” so you can log in and watch them at any time. There may be different time or access conditions associated with certain bonus videos, pdfs, or other materials.
This is a self study course, and it is up to you to study, do the work, and learn, in order to benefit from this course. It is always up to you to decide what is best for you and best for your design.
You should receive a confirmation email automatically shortly after your purchase which will include a link to log in to the course. You will create an account through Thinkific.com and must log in to access the course materials. Please keep track of your log in information, and if you forget your password, you can reset it by visiting https://gardenprojectacademy.thinkific.com/users/sign_in, selecting the forgot password link, and following the steps to reset your password.

No refunds. If there are extenuating circumstances, please reach out to email@example.com and we will consider your case. We are reasonable people and want you to have the best possible experience taking courses at Garden Project Academy, while balancing reasonable protection of our offerings. Please read full terms and conditions on this entire page.
Please understand, digital products are a tricky industry to offer refunds for because people in the past have been known to purchase courses, enjoy (or steal) the materials, and then ask for a refund. This is a quality course, and it costs less than it typically costs to have a landscape designer consult for only a few hours (and you receive three years access to over 10 hours of content). Even if there are certain parts of the course that do not apply to your current circumstances, it is likely that other parts are still helpful for you and your design project. Again, if there are extenuating circumstances, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will consider your case. We are reasonable people and want you to have the best possible experience taking courses at Garden Project Academy, while balancing reasonable protection of our offerings. Thank you for understanding.
Do not share your private log in information or otherwise share this course with others. This is a quality course, and it costs less than it typically costs to have a landscape designer consult for only a few hours (and you receive three years access to over 10 hours of expert content). If you purchased a ticket to a conference or a class, you would need to purchase one ticket per person. Please think of this in a similar way. I worked very to create this course, and believe it is perfectly reasonable to be compensated for a person’s access to this information.
We understand watching with perhaps a friend or a spouse (that’s just reasonable), but if you share your course log in information with others, or if numerous IP Addresses are logging into one account, or if there are any other indications of exporting or sharing these materials outside of these agreed upon policies (please read this entire page), then at our discretion, we reserve the right to disable your account and refuse future business interactions at any time and without any refunds. If you have additional questions, please reach out to email@example.com and we will consider your case.
If you ever see someone else copying, stealing, or blatantly sharing our materials, it helps SO much if you send us an email to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The post pinned to the top of the feed includes the rules: be sure to select “see more” and read them all!
If you get kicked out of the community, we will notify you, and we may delete some or all of your posts, comments & activity without recovery. In this case, you will not lose access to the core course materials (the core videos and pdfs), but you will lose access to the community space. You will not receive any refunds for being removed from the community, since the community is only meant to supplement the core course materials.
