This terraced garden we created in Termonfeckin co.Louth. It previously was sloped towards the house which made the garden wet near the house as well as the lawn difficult to cut. Our client wanted the slope reduced and a new patio area that she could enjoy throughout the year. We created a design for her that which would remodel the slope to a terrace design with a small retaining wall and two steps to a level lawn area which would be easy to cut with mowing edge bricks against a curving low maintenance style raised beds. These were constructed using contrasting colours of greys and browns to the bright and warm colours of the Donegal quartz paving which is a very durable indigenous stone.
