About John Deegan

Having had an interest in gardening from an early age, John studied in Horticulture at Kildalton Horticultural College Co Kilkenny from 1978-1980.

After qualifying he worked in Stewarts Hospital Palmerstowns’ nursery, landscaping and ground maintenance section. To further his knowledge he traveled to Munich, Germany from 1981-1985. He worked with numerous landscaping companies ie. Gartencenter Seebauer, Schoenergarten and Mueler und Scheer, working up to landscape foreman on large private projects and apartment complexes. Works included natural and concrete paving, planting, grassing, water and garden features to a very high standard.

John also speaks German (Bayrisch).

In 1986 John saw the opportunity to start a landscaping company in Dublin at a time when new house building was taking off. He concentrated on smaller gardens and show gardens for the construction industry. This then expanded to designing and constructing larger gardens and public open spaces.

We pride ourselves on maximizing every opportunity to both save space and maintain individuality and uniqueness in each garden.
