Peter Dowdall, Garden Designer in Cork

  • ​From an early age I realized that garden design was my calling. I am an Irish Garden Designer in Cork and have been passionate about gardens, gardening and landscaping all my life.

  • I truly believe that great garden design ultimately makes your home a better place to live in.

  • I design the outdoors very much in conjunction with the home and indoor space so that it all works well together.​

  • By always focusing on both beauty and biodiversity, I am wholeheartedly dedicated to creating work that matters.

  • A garden cannot exist in isolation and thus creating an environmentally sustainable space is essential.

  • I offer a complete garden design service where, after the initial consultation you will be presented with a Landscape Design on CAD which I can then take through the pricing process or you are of course free to get your own prices to implement the design.​

    Each garden project is different and each client wants something different from their outdoor space. 

  • Enhancing biodiversity is a huge challenge to all of us at the moment and to that end, each garden that I design will have a strong focus on working in tandem with nature and complimenting the surrounding countryside. garden designer in cork, cork garden designer, garden designs, biodiversity gardens, Peter Dowdall garden designer

  • Obtaining a good garden design is only the first step in the process. Choosing the right Landscaper to implement the design and carry out the Landscaping is equally as important.

  • I will manage the process for you, obtaining prices from the correct Landscaper for your garden and managing the landscaping and implementation of the design.

  • No matter how good the garden design or how expertly the hard landscaping elements have been installed, the most visual element of any garden is the plants and planting.

  • Each Garden Design comes complete with a Planting Plan.peter dowdall garden designer in cork, planting plans, garden designer douglas cork

  • I also develop planting plans for existing gardens or garden designs.
  • Probably the most important element of any garden, visually the plants bring impact and continuity to the garden landscape and correct plant choice will promote biodiversity and encourage beneficial wildlife.peter dowdall garden designer in cork, planting plans, garden designer douglas cork
  • I also offer a garden advice and consultancy service where I will call to meet you at your garden and we can discuss all aspects of the garden and go through what you want from the garden.

  • If you would like me to help with your garden project, get in touch with any enquiries. You can email me at
