Anne Byrne Garden Design produces garden plans to help you make the most of your outside space.
“When you choose Anne Byrne Garden Design, you can rest assured that you (and your garden) are in safe hands. I’ll bring my vision, experience, and passion to your project to help you unlock the potential of your garden. Trust me, that potential is there, and we will unlock it together.”
The result is a plan or set of plans drawn to scale, showing every detail in the proposed garden, including paving, paths, steps, walls, boundary solutions and planted areas.
“What happens next is up to you – you can implement the plans straight away – and I can help you to choose a landscaping contractor if you like – or in stages, as time and budget allows.”
Anne spent several years in the financial services industry, culminating in a role as trust officer for a private bank. Sparked by an interest in people and what makes them tick, this allowed her to hone her communication skills.
A growing interest in gardening led her to pursue Royal Horticultural Society qualifications in horticulture and garden design, both awarded with commendation.
She realised that although most Irish people want a garden, many don’t know where to begin when it comes to the space outside their home. Frequently busy with career and family commitments, they often end up not doing much at all, or not being happy with the results. A well designed garden plan brings clarity to the project and gives the client peace of mind, as they know that with each part of the plan they implement (often over time), they are working towards a coherent end result. In other words, it helps avoid expensive mistakes.
Anne believes strongly that a beautiful, useful, affordable garden is a possibility for everyone.
She has designed gardens for clients all over the west of Ireland, including home owners, nursing homes, hotels and community groups. Her weekly Gardenwise column has been appearing in the Advertiser Group of Newspapers since 2016 and she is a monthly contributor to Galway Now magazine.
With the list of counties covered always expanding, she has her sights set on the UK market in the longer term, thanks to her design-only business model, which allows the actual design work to be done in her home studio. Instagram and Facebook allow her to share snapshots of ongoing projects as well as of her own Co Galway garden.
A graduate of the inaugural Empower Growth programme, she says“Empower helped me because it was great to talk business with like- minded people. Starting a business from scratch is very lonely. You have to figure out everything for yourself, especially if it’s something nobody else is doing. It was great to see how other people, in completely different businesses, are handling challenges and working towards growth. ”
