Introduction to OutStyle Ltd
OutStyle is brought to you by Jonathan Wallis & Blair Somers. Jonathan has a passion for outdoor living and is carrying on a long family tradition in horticulture and landscaping. Jonathan’s parents Tim & Suzanne established the National Garden Exhibition Centre and Calumet Nurseries in Kilquade, Co. Wicklow in the 1990’s. When this business was sold to the current owners, the Wallis family set up the Wicklow Walled Garden Centre in Mount Usher Gardens in Ashford. This has been going strength to strength over the last couple of years and has been a go-to location to find unusual plant stock – this is also the fabulous location of OutStyle.
Jonathan is also the driving force behind Exhibition Landscapes, a Wicklow based hard and soft landscaping business that has been established for more than 20 years. Covering all aspects of garden renovation, re-modelling and planting. He has the extensive knowledge and vision to help you furnish your outdoor space.
Blair also has a passion for all things outdoor, from BBQ’s to smart control systems for lighting and sound, to comfortable places to spend quality time with friends and family. Blair has over 20 years experience in retailing and customer service and will be the friendly face that will greet you in our shop in Mount Usher Gardens on most days.
For various reasons, we now live in a world where people spend more and more time in their gardens and outdoor areas. We noticed that during the design of gardens, clients were asking for many more items than would traditionally have been included. It used to be patios and raised beds with the odd water feature or rose arch thrown in. Now though, people look for corner sofas, firepits, outdoor cooking and preparation areas, hot tubs, smart lighting, egg chairs and so on. These can be incorporated at the design stage but can of course be added to any garden at any stage.
We have started OutStyle to provide a source for the outdoor and garden accessories that are now being sought. We are trying to bring you something a little different – items that you might not find elsewhere and also give you some ideas that you might not have thought of. Our ethos is to bring you quality products from some of the best manufacturers in the world, right here in Co. Wicklow.
We really look forward to welcoming you to our outdoor display area and shop in Mount Usher Gardens Ashford, where we can explain our ranges and tailor them to your requirements. We offer a full design and installation service too, through our sister company Exhibition Landscapes.
