Jenny Mac Hale

Jenny Mac Hale has just bought a new 4-bed house in the scenic spot of Roscam, overlooking Galway Bay.

She likes plants with all year round colour, lush grass and decking and lighting so that she can enjoy her garden at night time too.

The Budget

Jenny set Diarmuid a budget of €12,000

Diarmuid's Challenge

Diarmuid's aim for design for Jenny's blank canvas was to 'bring the eye around this garden, with a number of different features' raised flower beds, 3 wooden structures which are also lightboxes, decadent limestone paving and maritime planting on the shores of Galway Bay. The planting and herbs, all sourced locally are suitable for use in the West of Ireland.

"I love the challenge of creating a garden here and trying to deal with small spaces as this is the future of gardening in this country".
