Garden Makeover: Diarmuid Gavin’s Colorful Box Garden

Playing around on You Tube, I have suddenly filled a void…I miss my Diarmuid Gavin TV gardens from my England days. His creativity and his ability to constantly surprise is a huge design inspiration for me. This garden is no exception and I am loving that he has used cool technology to present the process from beginning to end in such an interesting way. I am crushing on him all over again.

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.

    Very cool. How do I get a hold of the people that did this?
