I’m currently Ireland’s youngest person to hold an award from the Royal Horticultural Society. In 2013 I was one of only two Irish landscape designers to win awards from The Royal Horticultural Society. My award was a Silver Gilt Award for my garden entitled ‘Around The Corner’ at BBC Gardeners World Live in Birmingham. I am the only Irish person to win a Silver Gilt Award at BBC Gardeners World, and the only person to design and build gardens at Bloom and The Mallow Garden Festival in three consecutive years.
Within three months of establishing About Your Garden James Comiskey had won his first major award at bloom. Within three years James became the only person to design and build garden at both bloom and the Mallow Garden Festival in three consecutive years. In 2013 James won a place in the Royal Horticultural Societies Garden competition ‘Metamorphosis A Design Journey’. This was a competition for four up and coming garden designers to build their designs at BBC Gardeners World Live in Birmingham. James went on to become the only Irish person ever to win a Silver Gilt Award from the RHS at BBC Gardeners World Live in that year. His latest award was a bronze award for his Back to Back Garden entitled Victoriana at The Royal Horticultural Societys Tatton Park Flower Show in Manchester.
We recently hired About Your Garden to help us complete a landscaping design as part of our planning conditions. From the off they were incredibly insightful into what potentially could work best on our large area site, taking everything from our ideas, the surrounding environment, maintenance, views, wildlife etc into account. I was thoroughly impressed with the service and the ease at which we refined the design down to its final version. I’d have no hesitation in recommending their services and would in general really recommend hiring a landscaping expert like them if you were getting into developing/redeveloping your garden – its a really good investment..
James transformed our garden from bland walled-in grass to an urban sanctuary. He really took on board our needs and worked to maximise the output of our budget without compromising on quality and gained my full trust in doing so. I would wholeheartedly recommend James as he is extremely professional and a pleasure to work with from start to finish and still calls to keep an eye on how our garden is maturing
About Your Garden undertook a garden design for us recently. For years we had struggled with a substantial garden space ourselves. We wanted somewhere to grow fruit trees and vegetables and we had made a start ourselves. But it just never looked right. James listened to what we wanted and drew up a terrific design. Now we have a fantastic, functional and really beautiful garden which we could never have created on our own. James delivered what he promised and we are absolutely delighted with the results.
James provided field support for WYG Environmental through his landscape business About Your Garden. He worked on site for and with WYG field technicians and scientists. James was flexible in the services he provided, from supporting WYG scientists during investigation and remedial works following oil spill events, to carrying out landscape reinstatement works. He was reliable and efficient and could be called upon to travel throughout Munster and beyond as a sub-contractor.
