This garden in Drogheda co.Louth was onriginally created on a steep gradient and the client wished to have a patio area that would be secluded from outside view. To do this it would need to be sunken by a foot from the original ground level. We dug this out with a micro digger as side access was narrow. A retaining wall was placed around the back and sides of the patio to retain the earth along the wall, hedge and building. It also became a nice feature surrounding the Indian sandstone circular patio. The slope of the lawn could now be reduced by using the good top soil dug out. Steps were created to access the patio and lawn creating a terraced effect. The finished garden including the timber pergola combined to create an interesting and usable garden with, I think, an influence of the ruins of Pompeii.

This garden created by GreenArt Landscapes was for a newly built house in Terenure. The clients wished to have a low maintenance back garden and a driveway and garden in the front. Also with a patio area to sit out as it received most sunshine in the front throughout the day and the garden in the rear was quite narrow. We chose to create a rectilinear styled low maintenance garden to maximise the space with gravel and camel dust Indian sandstone stepping stones and raised sleeper beds in the rear garden. In the front we chose a curvilinear style using Tobermore Shannon heather colour brick for the driveway which complemented the house beautifully and a 3m camel dust sandstone patio surrounded by gravel. The planting in the beds included multi-stemmed birch, Japanese loqout and a mixture of cottage perennials and heathers for seasonal interest. The design and implementation complements the house beautifully.

This rear garden in Beaubec 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 sets and a central feature 3m Indian Sandstone camel dust inset on the patio. We also re-laid the lawn with roll out turf to complete this beautiful terraced garden.

For this garden in Mornington co. Meath our clients wanted a complete makeover for their front and back garden which was overgrown and offered little aesthetic value to their property. We redesigned their front and back garden to incorporate a new driveway, patios areas with Indian sandstone and turf lawn areas for their son. In doing so we created a beautiful space for them to enjoy while maximising the size and use of their garden.
