The Designed Garden – completing the picture

The Garden & Landscape Design Association celebrates its 21st Seminar on Saturday, 11th February 2017 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Santry, Dublin 9 (Co-ordinates N 53.4044; W 6.2456) .


Behind every well designed garden there is a team of talented and dedicated professionals; the Landscape Architect or Garden Designer, the Landscape Contractor and the Nurseryman who take a site and a client brief from its inception to its reality as a beautiful and functional outdoor space. Each has a unique and essential role to play.

At the GLDA’s 21st Seminar on Saturday 11th February 2017, come and meet ‘The Team’ and explore with them their individual roles and the teamwork involved in ‘Completing the Picture’

Tully’s Nurseries Visit

Last month we had a fantastic visit to Tully’s Nursery in Richardstown, Ballyboughal, Co. Dublin. Despite the deluge of rain, we had a good turn out of hardy GLDA members. We were guided around the new specimen trees  by Martin, Dagmara & Jonathan and walked through acres of their tunnels, highlighting all their new plants available. Once we were in the tunnels, we had lots of questions for them on all of their plants, as we were as excited as children in a sweet shop. We had a lovely lunch which was greatly appreciated.  It was a great day out and we all came away wanting more plants for our gardens!
