Hospital Garden Renovation in Cork, Ireland

The Brief

Cork University Hospital wanted to create a public garden space in the maternity hospital that could become an outdoor refuge for new mothers & mothers to be. We came along after completion by another contractor and we were asked to renovate & correct the planting.

Our Solution

The garden itself was designed by Garden Designer Diarmud Gavin. We surveyed the site and following this provided a list of recommended plants that would be suitable for the environment. We then transformed the outdoor space using a selection of careful selected plants & materials from Belgium and Holland. The process was carefully planned to coordinate staff and deliveries as this was a fully operational hospital.


The client and the public reactions were fantastic, everyone was delighted. It is now an outdoor place that is thoroughly enjoyed as respite by new mothers.
