Describe your business in 3 words
Inspiring Garden Design
What has been your greatest achievement to date?
Starting Anne Byrne Garden Design and developing it into a thriving business with lots of happy clients!
What are your hopes for your business in 2020?
Helping more people to realise the potential in their gardens with a set of practical, easy to follow garden plans.
What person or book has inspired you?
Finding Your Own North Star by Martha Beck. My background was in financial services and when I was bitten by the garden bug, I couldn’t see how to make it my livelihood. This book inspired me to find and follow my own North Star – what I’m really good at and meant to do – and although it hasn’t all been easy I’ve never looked back. Well not in anger anyway………..
What did you want to be when you grew up as a child?
Since I discovered Enid Blyton at the age of six or seven I thought being a writer was the coolest thing in the universe, and I have ended up doing just that, with a regular column, InsideOut, in Galway Now magazine, and the Gardenwise column for the Galway Advertiser.
Business Description – what do you do?
Anne Byrne Garden Design provides Garden Plans for that you can choose to build right away or in stages. Everything is covered, from boundaries to paving to plants, and is designed to suit your particular space, your personal needs and your budget. I’ll help you with sourcing what you need and choosing a contractor too, as well as using my vision and experience to make your budget go further than you might imagine. Clients sometimes think I’ve read their minds, but actually I listen carefully, visualise what’s possible, and figure out the best way to make it happen for you.
