Mary designs gardens that marry the needs and wishes of the lands guardian with the needs and wishes of the land itself. With her roots in natural gardening theory, Mary seeks to create spaces that are healing, truthful and magical.

A Chelsea flower show gold medal winner, Mary has designed gardens internationally for more than 17 years, including commissions in Kew Royal botanical gardens in London as well as occasional stints of garden television presenting for RTE and BBC.

Mary has recently published a comprehensive and ground – breaking book; The Garden Awakening. Her new approach to garden design is a practical treasure map that leads gardeners into a gentle and healing relationship with the land.
This beautiful book is a step by step instruction manual drawing on ancient methods of working with the land and using them to invite the power and energy of nature back into your life and surround your house and life in its life giving healing embrace.

A feature length film: Dare To Be Wild based on Mary’s true life story made by Irish director Vivienne de Courcey, was released in 2016.
