Castleview Landscapes is an award winning landscaping company based in O’ Callaghan’s Mills, Co. Clare. We work throughout Co. Clare, Limerick,Galway and Tipperary. We have been established since 2012 and in this short time we have worked on some very prestigious projects.

My name is Eric McNamara and I am the director of Castleview Landscapes. Having initially studied greenkeeping & horticulture, I spent many successful years in the construction industry before going back to my real passion, studying garden design and setting up this garden design and landscaping business. My experience and background in construction has helped me enormously in terms of project management, planning and creation of garden spaces.

My aim is to provide each of my clients with a garden space that suits them and their lifestyles. I listen carefully to all my clients to get a clear understanding of their likes and dislikes, their concerns and ideas. I focus on providing my clients with a hassle-free experience. Throughout each project I strive to keep my clients regularly informed of progress.

I work with a reliable, professional and approachable team who take great pride in the quality of our work.
