Career highlights?

Setting up my own successful Landscape Design and Landscaping Company &
Winning Gold in medium category 2009 and Gold in large category 2010 silver medal in large category in Boom 2008.

Design Style?

My gardens would be considered quite contemporary, but I do love all design styles and themes.

Solo, team, collaborative?

Design and build are a team effort. I am very fortunate to have an amazing team of designers, landscapers & horticulturists, who are as passionate and dedicated as I am.

Unique Selling Point?

Only one phone call needed and we will look after the whole project! We design, build and maintain gardens so I can offer everything in-house, from the initial consultation, the garden design, the complete build, project managing the build and even maintaining the new garden for years to come.

Selling your work?

My clients will usually study our website and Instagram in detail and read all our 5 star Google reviews. They contact us because they really like the high standard of our work and understand that the whole experience will be enjoyable and hassle free. But I love to get in front of my clients and my enthusiasm and my passion for my work is what sells my designs.

Handling client expectations?

We have a robust set of tried and tested systems and processes in
place, so our clients are always very clear what to expect along the journey. Discussing budget at the onset and regular communication is key.

Favourite garden and Garden Designer?

Every year in May we go as a family to Mount Usher gardens in Wicklow. Favourite designers: I love the work of Luciano Gubbili and when I lived in
Australia I was, introduced to the amazing work of a garden designer called Paul Bangay.

We had our garden redesigned by Dean in Landart and would highly recommend him and his team. Everything was done to a very high standard and would have no hesitation recommending them. We love the garden they created and it now feels like an extension of our home. Well worth the investment. Breda

Margot Slattery, Glenageary

In summer 2021 Dean and his team created the most fantastic back and front garden for me. I was so impressed with the plans Dean created and then the professional team Shane, Val and Paul who did the hard landscaping and the planting. The team are very talented and wonderful to work with. Everything was finished to such a high standard I ended up with a show garden. The garden has given such pleasure to me and to the people who have seen it. I highly recommend LandArt

He is always friendly, has great recommendations for planting, does a great job and always leaves the garden looking like new 😊. We would highly recommend Rodney and Landart for any job in your garden. Orla and Tom
