The first one which you can read here is all about the power of blossoms as design inspiration! As a designer I love gardens which have put thought into early flowering.

Seeds of Joy- 5 small things we can all do to feel better right now

How is everyone doing right now? I wonder is anyone else going through some strange ups and downs? One minute I am feeling calm, hopeful for the future and enjoying the spells of sunshine here in my little corner in the West of Ireland….and the next- bam- I’m thrown into a spell of feeling a deep sense of blue. I think maybe it’s that uncertainty of where this is all

GARDEN 101-Garden therapy

Everyone that spends time enjoying their garden knows that gardening is therapy. There is something about the fresh air, the touching of plants and appreciation of nature that slows us down and makes us feel good. Gardening undoubtedly has a positive impact on our psychological wellbeing. The garden is the perfect spot to relax and unwind and being surrounded by green is the perfect antidote to modern day stress of

GARDEN 101-The power of Green

When you think about gardens what is the first colour that comes to mind? You will undoubtedly answer green and this is no surprise considering that green is the colour of most planting and considered the colour most associated with Springtime, nature and growth. Even the word green comes from the middle English and Anglo Saxon word ‘grene’ which, like the German word grün has the same germanic root as the words

GARDEN DESIGN | The Great Outdoors

When was the last time you took a walk outside in our amazing wild landscape? I love exploring off the beaten track, discovering new paths leading to new views and stunning scenery. There is something about wandering aimlessly which makes you feel calm and rejuvenated, and sometimes I think that every new discovery brings a subtle shift in perspective. How therapeutic the rich green corners in the forest are, full

GARDEN VISIT -Magical Lissadell | 54.3467° N, 8.5809° W

Some gardens take your breath away. Whether through sophisticated planting design, clever colour or material use, fascinating historical contexts or spectacular visual settings; some gardens just shine brighter than others. Anyone that has ever visited the Lissadell house gardens will know what I mean. Set smack bang on the edge of the wild Atlantic coast, the house, which sits surrounded by sloping pastures and lush woodland leads the eye over undulating

GARDEN VISIT -Get your wild on at W8 village

How a local regeneration project in the rural countryside has put Leitrim on the map Yesterday I had a lovely day. Just back from a trip away I was heading to check on a recently completed planting job, expecting to make some final snag lists on mulching, weeding and pruning and then head off again. Instead, I found this particular design happily settling into the borders- weeding complete, beds mulched
