About the Instructor
I’m Jordan – founder of The Landscape Library.
I believe great landscape architecture emerges when the natural character of any environment is complimented with a carefully curated space that brings natural life, functionality and creativity to those who view and occupy the space.
After leaving Bjarke Ingels Group in 2020, I freelanced for award winning and upscale landscape design professionals in the United States using Rhino and AutoCAD as my primary 2D and 3D software’s to develop plans, sections and renderings for client’s. Regardless of the geographic location, I noticed businesses, employees and designers not exploiting software’s to their full capability- ultimately slowing down the process and not taking advantage of efficiency in software.
In 2021, shortly after realizing this, I founded The Landscape Library to bridge the gap between small and large businesses by creating an online platform that provides trainings, pre-built digital tools, resources and media for landscape designers.
Once completing “AutoCAD for Landscape Design”, you will receive a Certification of Completion certificate!
Your hard work, time commitment, and enhancement of software skills are rewarded by entering and completing this online landscape design course.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I just started in the landscape design industry?
Absolutely, this course is meant for a complete beginner or an intermediate user looking to boost their efficiency in the software.
By the end of this course you will know how to use every aspect of AutoCAD specifically to design landscape plans from start to finish. This same exact workflow can be applied to future projects and all resources and files provided within the training are yours to use.
The course covers a real-life, residential property (similar to what you will see in the field) with all files provided like plat of survey, homeowners notes, pictures and more. I take you through how to build up a landscape plan from scratch into a final landscape plan to present to your clients. During the course, you are taught:
- How to establish a workflow to save time on future projects
- Core fundamentals of landscape design for residential
- How to master AutoCAD for landscape design
- How to start and finish landscape plans for client meetings
How is the course taught?
The course is taught all online and is accessible 24/7 through our course dashboard. Upon purchasing the course, you will be given login details at which you can sign in to the course dashboard and begin learning AutoCAD immediately.
How are the digital libraries delivered?
The digital files are pre-loaded in your course dashboard with corresponding material. To access your digital libraries, in week 2 you will find the Minimalist Plant Library and in week 3, you will find the Construction Details Library.
Are all modules released upfront?
Yes, all modules are released upfront. The course is set up to allow designers to watch and learn trainings in a free-form way.
Is AutoCAD included in the purchase of the course?
AutoCAD is not included with the purchase of AutoCAD for Landscape Design. I highly recommend AutoCAD LT, a more cost effective version of regular AutoCAD without 3D capabilities. Here is a link to AutoCAD LT by AutoDesk
What system are the tutorials recorded on?
All tutorials were recorded on Windows, however throughout the video trainings, shortcuts for Mac are announced. AutoCAD commands do not change regardless of system, only shortcuts are different
What is the return policy?
Due to the nature of the course modules being released upfront and including pre-built digital libraries that are available immediately for download, all course sales (including the payment plan) are final. If you have questions prior to purchase, we’d be glad to help. Please send questions to [email protected].
