Garden Design

I work with a variety of gardens from tiny city courtyards to bigger new gardens mostly in Leinster, the South East & Dublin. One of the reasons I gain so much satisfaction from designing gardens is that each garden requires a unique and individual approach to marry the needs of the client and the best aspects of the site. Every garden is a collection of well chosen, coherent planting presented on a beautifully executed framework of hard & soft landscaping.

My style is focussed on using classic elements such as clipped hedges, good hard landscaping features such as steps and edging and a combination of great performing plants and shrubs. I have a deep knowledge of hundreds of plants and also experience in combining these plants into lush, beautiful, interesting and long lasting schemes that will add value to your property and lots of happiness to your life. I work with a small number of clients every year and between us we make beautiful spaces. Mostly a client books a garden consult which covers two hours of my time in their garden, a follow up proposal, site analysis and a lot of ideas to explore. This is probably the easiest way to get a feel for what I think would work best to suit your needs. If you like this then you can progress to a design package and I can work with a contractor to make sure the space follows the plan. Generally each garden is priced differently depending on what needs to be done. Sometimes there is lots of hard landscaping to be done and other times there is more focus on planting design. You may also choose to take the report and work through my suggestions yourself.
The cost of the Consult is €300 which covers travel, a visit for two hours and a follow up report. Currently I work with clients in counties Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Waterford, Kildare and Dublin city & county only.
