This is a contemporary low maintenance urban garden we created on a sloping site in Drogheda county Louth. The site was particularly challenging due to the very steep site and awkward access through the terraced house to the garden. The brief was to create a relatively low maintenance garden with outdoor entertaining space with had privacy from the neighbouring gardens and could be enjoyed all year round. We decided that terracing the steep slope with composite decking would be the way to go . While the best option was to erect timber cladding for the boundary fencing and create cottage styles perennial plantings for the beds which would give a modern urban garden feel to the space while most importantly maximising the beautiful views and aspect to this south facing garden. The results were transforming.
