Terraced Garden design with retaining wall Drogheda co.Louth
Curving Retaining wall
Sloping garden before grading
This rear garden in Five Oaks, Drogheda Co.Louth was on a steep gradient which was difficult for the owners to use and maintain and offered little as an outdoor room. The clients decided that he wished to have the garden on two levels with the lower level to be a patio area that could be used for outdoor dining/relaxing and a dry standing area to hang out their laundry. When i arrived they had already dug out the majority of the soil and had a good idea about how they wanted their garden to look. With our help we decided on the type and colour of the materials to be used. Tobermore country stone in bracken colour was used for the retaining wall with a land drain pipe fitted behind to catch any water coming down the slope.Tobermore Sandstone coloured Mayfair flags for the patio, with bracken setts and a central feature 3m Indian Sandstone camel dust inset on the patio. We also relaid the lawn with roll out turf to complete this beautiful terraced garden.
