The Specsavers 'Wonderful Awakening' garden was awarded the bronze medal by a panel of garden judges at this year’s Bloom 2015 Awards.

Hidden gems

Designed by Irish Landscape Architect, Karen Butler, the interactive sensory garden invited visitors to awaken their senses through the subtle use of water features, lighting, gravels, and many other hidden gems, as they passed through the garden.

Wonderful experience

Sinead Clohessy, chairperson of Specsavers Ireland commented on the win,

“We’re absolutely delighted about the win for the Specsavers ‘Wonderful Awakening’ garden. Karen did a superb job of designing not only a garden that looks amazing but one that also awakens the senses of those experiencing it. It’s important for us to remind people of the importance of looking after their senses and are proud to be involved with such wonderful experience that communicates this perfectly.”

Free hearing tests

Specsavers provided free hearing screenings to Bloom visitors throughout the weekend and the team were on hand to advise people on their optical and hearcare queries.
