Working in Kylemore Abbey
As part of my college placement I spent five months in Kylemore Gardens. A wonderful experience in a breathtaking place.
The ideal garden space
I believe a garden should be social, therapeutic, sensory, inclusive and educational. It should present an extention of the house and feel like an outside room. Historically suburban gardens were functional rather than aesthetic, a pathway to the clothes line and a strip of concrete at the back door. I aspire to create individual, creative, meaningful spaces to encourage engagement with the outdoor space and to enjoy with family and friends.
