Francis Harte is a newly established garden designer based in Co. Wicklow. On completing his Diploma in Garden Design from London’s highly regarded KLC School of Design, he was awarded Student of the Year.

A keen gardener himself, Francis’ design instincts are informed by his love of nature and a deep interest in gardens throughout history.  He draws particular inspiration from gardens of the Arts and Crafts movement.  He favours strong, geometric lines and architectural planting, which give structure throughout the year and provide a striking juxtaposition with abundant, looser planting elsewhere.  Design details and choices of materials ensure a harmonious relationship with the house or local surroundings, which is a perfect recipe for a garden of any size.
