St Patrick’s Day Celtic Garden Inspiration

As I wrote my book last year, I considered so many different styles of gardens to discuss.  There where quite a few that didn’t make the cut for no other reason reason but that there were simply too many.  So, in light of the upcoming holiday of St. Patrick’s Day (which, here in Boston, seems to rank a close second behind Halloween on the list of ‘Holidays That New Englanders Particularly Relish‘) – and because I have a whole list of interesting things to share on the subject of Celtic and Irish inspired garden design, I will be posting a little series of all things related over the next few days.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
