Lavender Landscapes was founded in 2004 by Shane Murphy, a well respected Garden Designer from Cork. Shane, with the help of his team, has developed it into a successful business renowned for excellent workmanship, top quality and innovative garden design.

Prior to setting up his own business, Shane gained valuable experience working in various aspects of garden design and horticulture. His enthusiasm and passion for creating the perfect outdoor space led him to setting up his own garden design and construction company.

”As a Garden Designer I work with my clients to design an outdoor space around my client’s needs that is beautiful, functional and interactive”.

Shane worked with us on Room to Improve and we set him a challenging brief to create a very specific look for the front of the house. He made wonderful architectural additions to the front terrace and we couldn’t have been happier with the end result, as were the homeowners. We look forward to working with Shane on future projects.

I have worked with Shane Murphy and Lavender Landscapes over the last several years. The quality and skill of Shane and his team is as good as it gets. There are no shortcuts taken in their work and the standard attained in each garden has been excellent. He has a deep knowledge and understanding of his job and as each project throws up different challenges this depth of knowledge is an invaluable resource to a designer such as myself, not the mention the client. He has implemented many projects for me over those years and I hope to continue this relationship well into the future.

Professional, well prepared, utterly reliable. Creative and well informed. Good sources of information and supplies. Very broad experience and expertise. Good team - all of whom are welcome at my (now finished) projects at any time in the future. Only company in 5 years of construction and garden work who will continue to work for me in the future. Unreserved recommendation.

Shane Murphy designed and laid a beautiful patio, flower and shrub garden for me. I am very pleased with his work. I’ve had him back to do other work since. He has also done work for family members and friends. He is extremely trustworthy, polite, artistic and it is a pleasure to have him work.
