Collaborations with Fitzpatrick and Mays Architects

We often design and make gardens for houses that have been designed by architects Sam Mays and Eileen Fitzpatrick -  Sam being older brother to Tig (Fitzpatrick and Mays Architects) . Working closely together from the start, our joint aim isn't just to make a beautiful house or a beautiful garden: it's to make a beautiful place. This means thinking of the whole set-piece: how the site lends itself to living an enjoyable life; how the home and garden are really the one thing: a place. Here are some examples of houses and gardens that we have worked on as a team.

A substantial house extension in Glenageary: the garden was planned from the outset to be an integral part of the house, with patios and levels all lending themselves to be accessible and visible from the house.
