Murray & Associates is a leading landscape architecture practice based in Clontarf, Dublin. The practice was founded in 1991 and undertakes a wide range of projects within the sphere of landscape consultancy including landscape design, environmental planning and landscape management.

Murray & Associates is a registered practice with The Irish Landscape Institute which is affiliated with IFLA (International Federation of Landscape Architects). Our Director Mr. John Ward is also an ISA Certified Arborist. We have built a strong reputation based on a wide range of green infrastructure and public realm projects throughout Ireland and internationally. Our personnel are dedicated and experienced professionals who are committed to best practice in the planning, design, implementation and management of the landscape through the provision of competent professional advice to our clients.

Murray & Associates offer a full service in landscape architecture in both the private and public sectors from initial design concept to certification of completed works on site. Our aim is to create outstanding, innovative, environmentally responsible landscapes that give value to clients, enjoyment to the end-user and satisfaction to us as professionals. The design element of the practice is supported by a service in project management and site supervision. This enables the practice to work with local authorities, architects, engineers, planners and others to achieve dynamic – yet realisable – landscapes.

As well as landscape architectural design, Murray & Associates offer consultancy in EIAR studies, visual impact assessment, environmental planning, landscape management and maintenance planning and arboricultural consultancy services – tree surveys, tree risk assessment, tree and woodland management, and arboricultural impact assessments.


Murray & Associates has been engaged by a diverse range of clients over the years, including local authorities, semi-state agencies, private clients, developers, engineers, architects and community groups, among others.

The practice has been retained by many of its major clients for over 10 years.

Our approach is based on collaboration and teamwork.  We enjoy working with other professionals as part of a project team to achieve quality in the built environment.
