Design

A good garden can be made on even the most windswept site… provided suitable plants are chosen.

The garden will probably comprise (for the first few years at least) mostly trees and shrubs with hard, leathery, downy or grey leaves. With careful grouping of colours, textures and shapes… striking effects can be obtained. The garden will fit into the landscape and later on, when the shelter becomes more established, there’s a much bigger choice to introduce less hardy plants.

Cluain na dTor can offer advice and work out your own personal plant list consisting of species that we know should thrive in your garden. It’s best to consider first what style of garden you’d like, whether it be formal, wild, mediterranean, exotic, cottage etc. Please email us your ideas, pick up the ‘phone or drop in for a chat’ if you’re in the area.

We can arrange a site visit (there is a site consultation fee) and discuss with you your aspirations and help find the best ways of achieving them, or what your problems are and what solutions are available.

Site Consultations will include a written report of what we have discussed along with a list of suggested plants suitable for your garden.
