About me

I’m a Garden Designer based in Kilkenny, Ireland. I originally trained in Design and I now teach gardening skills to advanced level and design a small number of gardens each year for private & corporate clients. My interest in gardening is multifaceted; I’m interested in design, the cultural history of gardens, the ecology of plants and plant communities, I’m also interested in style and how plants can be used to create interest, make effects and add drama and beauty to our lives. More than any of the above though I am interested in creating innovative plantings that are highly atmospheric and a pleasure to live with.
