This garden in Tyrellstown co.Dublin was in need of a complete makeover. Its lawn was in a poor state and infested with weeds. The deck area had been installed a number of years ago but was now steadily deteriorating and becoming hazardous while the fence panels need a good painting to bring them up to par.
Its owners were a young family and wanted to make best use of the garden in a number of ways including : A play area for the kids ,for relaxing and eating outdoors while oversall the garden needed to offer a pleasant view form the house at all times of the year.
The garden also lawn sloped down to the house so it was necessary to create patio area that would take water away from the house. We did this by installing linear drainage at the edge of the patio and house.
We created raised beds for vertical interest with a mixture of evergreen and deciduous shrubs and cottage perennials for seasonal colour. While a brick mowing edge would surround both patio and raised beds so that no grass would grow up against the sides of the bed or patio to be strimmed. Our clients and us were delighted with the transformation.
