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.
