Landscaping, Small Garden Spaces

I’m due to host and speak at the garden talks stage at Limerick Garden Festival 2018 and it seems appropriate that I post the crux of that talk here so it may be referred to by those who come to see.

These points will be a little more of a guide than an essay but should explain better what you have heard or maybe forgot to jot down as I spoke.

Very much looking forward to this and in the meantime if you have any questions ? You can get me here:

The title of the talk:

Smart Garden Design – Small Spaces

1. The Backdrop.

My reason for mentioning this creature? It’s great when my nieces & nephews pop around to say I saw some and for the gardener – these guys eat just about every bug & insect pest available.

I spotted this chappie having a nap in some long grass last week – simply brilliant watching nature!
