Diarmuid Gavin will talk about creating a garden, from the brief and the ideas to the design and the implementation.

He will draw upon several projects, domestic and public and talk about how they came about, the importance of listening, that spark of an idea. He will show how he represents that idea to the client and will discuss the single vision that’s required to bring a scheme to fruition.
