Brian O' Hara Design, Landscape Designer, Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

Good Design That Makes Sense

Brian O’Hara believes that garden design can be an art form, but that it’s beauty should stem very much from its functionality and not just from random decoration. Every area and piece of material should fit comfortably together like a jigsaw, attention to small detail is essential.

Brian first discovered his love for garden design in Germany where he lived for 19 years. Brian has a keen sense of space, proportion and colour and also an excellent understanding of materials and construction.

10 Years Of Gardens

In 2004 Brian returned to Ireland and established himself as one of Ireland's leading landscape designers. Since then, Brian has designed and created 200 gardens, ranging from small urban plots to large rural gardens.

From Start To Finish

You choose. We can provide garden design only or a full design and landscaping service. Our service includes design, patios, decks, stonework and planting.

Design That's Affordable

Good design doesn't have to mean big budgets. We provide a service that is accessible to all, using smart design, materials and construction to create what you need on your budget.

Bloom Garden Winner

In 2007 Brian O’Hara created his first show garden at Bloom in the Park which delighted garden lovers with its clean lines and warm, lush atmosphere. The garden won a silver medal and was named the best minimalist garden in the show by the Sunday Business Post. Another Bloom silver medal was won by Brian in 2008.
