Instructor

Garden Designer and Garden Design Tools Instructor

Catarina Gonçalves

My name is Catarina Gonçalves, I’m from Portugal currently living in Ericeira. I’m a garden designer, graduated from Greenwich University in 2006, I love everything to do with design, gardens, and plants. And of course, outdoor living, decoration, and furniture are elements I enjoy a lot when working with clients. Since 2017 that I wanted to create a blog or a website so I could share my experiences not only as a garden designer but mainly how I developed my projects and how I create my renderings and animations. So in 2018, I started Garden Design Tools.
