From The Maker: Mark Grehan

The Garden

Mark Grehan established The Garden, Powerscourt Townhouse 7 years ago. Mark began his career as a landscape designer whilst training to become a florist; now he finds great fulfilment working as both.Taking inspiration from the landscape and fields of Connemara where he grew up, ‘The Garden’ fuses a simplistic and whimsical floral style which allows the naturalism of the blooms and foliage to shine through effortlessly.

The Garden works to create bespoke floral arrangements that are uniquely tailored to each occasion and which will resonate through memory and photographs for years to come. His floral presence in the historically important Powerscourt setting together with Mark’s landscaping work has won several awards including a Silver Gilt medal at Bloom, Ireland's leading annual garden show.

‘My style tends to be natural, drawing inspiration from the landscape. I like to try and re-create how plants and flowers grow in their natural environment within my work. My style is relaxed, wild and masculine, letting the flowers, blooms, and foliage speak for themselves’ says Mark.

There will be a specially selected range of his mini succulents, cacti, ferns and indoor plants in store from 1st June in addition to an enhanced selection of pots and accessories from current Só Collective ceramics partners.

An in store demo will be held, as part of Só Collective’s ‘From the Maker’ series for June 2017, where Mark will be hosting an interactive workshop with customers and sharing his expert advice on how to create bespoke Summer arrangements to enhance the home.
