11 UPPER MOUNT STREET,
Paul Doyle is widely regarded as one of Ireland's leading garden designers. Paul graduated
from the National Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin in 1990 and runs a successful garden design
business with offices in Rathgar, Dublin and Grange Con, West Wicklow. For many years
Paul's business has been conducted ex-directory, enabling him to build a strong, loyal clientbase
through word of mouth referrals.
Over the years Paul has created many of Ireland's finest contemporary gardens. These typically
enhance some of the capital's most elegant Georgian, Victorian and contemporary residences.
Having grown up in Grange Con in West Wicklow with its elegant planned Georgian village lay-out, Paul is also highly adept at handling the challenges laid down by country estates and rural gardens. None more so than Longstone Beacon, Paul's own country residence that has been maturing over the past ten years. Longstone Beacon is an exercise in co-ordinated architectural and landscape planning. From the outset Paul selected the site location, size, shape and orientation. He then designed the house and garden to compliment each other and fundamentally, the site and greater landscape. To further underscore the importance of integration into the landscape, Paul constructed the house five years after the garden had commenced!
Recently Paul has extended his design skills to include ornamental doors and garden furniture, most notably the Eco Oak bench and the infinitely elegant Ulysses Seat and bench showcased in his winning garden at the Bloom Garden Festival in The Phoenix Park, Dublin in 2008.
Paul's design ethos is one of great elegance and balance, stemming from his interpretation of the individual needs of each client and the personality of each particular site encountered. Every garden design is site-specific and is personally designed and project-managed.
Paul has created three public show gardens in Ireland and has been awarded both Gold medal
and Best in Show awards on each occasion.
Most recently, in 2010, Paul presented the Specsavers Sculpture Garden at the Bloom Garden Festival, Dublin.
In 2008 Paul's majestic Art Deco Mulberry Grove for The Travel Department set new standards for Irish garden design and underscored his position as an Irish garden designer of world class calibre. Previously, Paul designed the winning show garden at the Royal Dublin Society in 2004, a small, elegant and necessary stepping stone towards the 2008 Art Deco garden.
This year Paul has donated his Bloom 2014 show garden to The Jack and Jill Children's Foundation.
