Friday 8th February saw The Donegan Lanscaping team awarded The Bord Bia Quality Award. Last year we achieved the award of merit, but, thanks to the hard work of the entire team, we have been certified a Quality Approved System.
Put simply, it certifies just how good we operate and are managed behind the scenes and professionally as a business.
In the meantime, thank you all for your support of the last years; and the years to come.
Donegan Landscaping won the award of Merit in the Best Private Garden Categoryand the Overall Award for Best Private Garden Maintenance, whilst Peter Donegan received award as designer of Veronica and Paddy Campbells 27 acre 17th Century estate.
Speaking after receiving the award Peter noted that ‘the awards forBrackenstown will remain one of the the highlights of my career for personal reasons as well as horticultural.’ He continued, ‘I described it recently to a friend of mine as 16th century poetry and as it’s being read to you, you amost feel the poets breath in your ear as he speaks words from his heart…. Some people feel it. I know I did and I loved every minute. Of all the gardens I ever visited, this is one I acually visit to escape my mind. Also until now the landscape was never completed and at 31 years old my design and The Donegan Landscaping team are the first to be acknowledged and awarded for this. It is an amazing place and for me one that will remain close to my heart.’
The judges noted that:
the work illustrates a consisted commitment to horticultural excellence in a restoration project that requires a keen understanding of the client’s requirements. The herbaceous beds in particular deserve special acclamation for their restrained but inventive interplay between colour and foliage texture.
And that the award goes to this project because the judges believe it:
demonstrates a discernible excellence in maintenance.
