Good money can be earned with the planning of private gardens - if you get involved with the customers and deliver high quality. But it's not just about the financial success of planning and execution. Plants, law, façade connections - expertise for planning private gardens. Monday, 3 September 2018, 1 to 5.30 p.m., koelnmesse, Hall 10.2, garden unique forum, R50.

Selecting the right plants and creating spaces with them requires extensive expertise, as does the careful planning of façade connections. However, specialist knowledge alone is no longer enough. Planners and contractors must also deal with building law. Because the more the garden develops to the extended living room, with winter garden, outdoor kitchen, pool or sauna, the more frequently the question arises: subject to permission or not?

The Ulmer Verlag with its trade journals Gartenpraxis and DEGA Galabau, together with the spoga gafa trade fair and the bdla, is therefore inviting landscape architects and contractors to a half-day specialist seminar in Cologne. On Monday, 3 September, five top-class speakers will give lectures on planning and building outdoor kitchens, designing with perennials and trees, professional planning of facade connections and building planning law in private gardens. The prelude makes at 13 o'clock a work lecture of Alexander cook from Pähl at the Ammersee, which won the competition gardens of the yearly in this year.

At 13.45 o'clock Astrid Kupschke, department chief building supervision and monument protection follows with the city Mettmann. She will point out the most important legal aspects of planning private gardens in North Rhine-Westphalia. Afterwards, Wolf D. Meyer-Ricks, landscape architect and ö.b.v. expert from Meerbusch, will explain how to properly plan and maintain plinth connections. As of October 2018, Meyer-Ricks heads the committee that is revising the FLL "Recommendations for the Design, Construction and Maintenance of Transition Areas from Open Spaces to Buildings."

Klaus Körber from the LWG Veitshöchheim deals with trees and shrubs that defy climatic changes and are less susceptible to pests and diseases. He will present climate change-resistant trees and shrubs that are not yet so widespread in private gardens, but which can compete with the structure, leaf and flower splendour of classic garden plants and at the same time remain healthy.

At 4 p.m., the audience will then change the venue of the lecture. Michael Kupka from kupkagarten in Waiblingen, one of the most experienced planners of outdoor kitchens, will present examples from his professional experience in the Outdoor Kitchen World in Hall 8 and explain the most important aspects of materials, planning and construction. The trade fair will then invite visitors to a get-together.
The event will be moderated by Cologne landscape architect Brigitte Röde. The participation in the seminar is free, who registers under, receives besides a free entrance ticket. Importantly for landscape architects: The Chamber of Architects of North Rhine-Westphalia has recognized the specialist lectures as an advanced training event.
