About Tim: Tim spent his formative years working in Fern Hill Gardens, Co. Dublin and Charleville House, Co. Wicklow before completing his formal training in landscape architecture. The influence of these gardens along with his upbringing at the foot of the Sugarloaf Mountain in Co. Wicklow is evident in the colours, textures and forms that he brings in to his designs, whether they incorporate bold contemporary architecture or are predominantly natural in style. Tim continues to create unique gardens for his clients today. His passion for design along with his extensive practical experience meant that he was selected to be the garden design judge on RTE’s ‘Super garden’ shows in both 2010 and 2011.
