A Little History

Liat and Oliver Schurmann run Mount Venus Nursery  in Dublin, a specialist nursery for unusual perennials and grasses, established in 2000. The nursery has gained a reputation for providing variety and personal service and have become the favourite for professional landscapers  and gardeners throughout Ireland.

Oliver and Liat have designed various show gardens and floral
exhibits, they have won many Gold Medals in succession and have a name for creating the more unusual and extraordinary.

They design gardens in the private sector, offer advice, provide consultancy and give talks.

It is becoming more and more a passion of theirs to design show gardens and to expose a new idea in public.

Both trained in a specialist Nursery in Germany, Liat remained working there and Oliver ran his own business in garden design and construction. Both are very much influenced by the continental and practical approach to good design. After ten years they decided to move to Dublin and set up a Nursery.

Their broad knowledge of plants and the accessibility as growers enables them to create detailed and diverse planting schemes, with the aim to achieve a well balanced plant society resulting in sustainability and low maintenance, always with the ecological approach in mind.
