The wild aesthetic

Welcome to your dream garden design I believe that an everyday connection to the wild is the basis of a more joyful way of living.  By surrounding ourselves with wildly beautiful gardens, immersing ourselves in stunning wild landscapes or allowing the power of plants and nature to inform all parts of our everyday living, we my design ideas aim to re-connect you with nature and empower you to live a wild

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 -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

The Wild Christmas table

It’s almost Christmas! I’m so excited. With only two days to go I always start to feel like a kid again and find myself falling asleep with a smile on my face with the anticipation of what’s to come in the next weeks. Long lazy days by the fire, gorgeously wrapped gifts under the tree and of course food. Glorious home cooked meals which are prepared slowly and eaten just
