Conservation Services has been creating school gardens since 2005. We are the foremost creator of wildife gardens and outdoor classrooms for schools in Ireland.
Our outdoor classrooms have been installed in over a hundred schools, parks and community areas nationwide.
We have designed and built complex gardens for schools often from scratch with nothing but a concrete yard to work with. We also frequently build gardens designed by Paddy Madden for schools.
Some of our projects are outlined here.
OutdoorClassroom's Andy Booth was chosen as one of the garden designers for RTE's Super Garden programme.
Andy's show aired on May 8th and is avilable on the RTE player. Photos below.

Functional raised beds mix with outdoor musical instruments and hand-made commissioned art work to creat a truly unique outdoor learning experience for the students.See what's in the garden at this article: Interactive Science, Music, Art and Nature Garden at Kill NS or Visit the school website for more photos .
