Garden Design for a small garden can be just as challenging as that of a bigger garden. Space is more precious and the use of the space needs to be considered thoughtfully with a lot of competing requirements. It is also very important to still give the garden design something special to provide that wow factor. In this garden design we designed a Built-In curved wooden garden seat suspended invisibly from a rock wall, which sits neatly into the corner of the garden, to provide that special something. We have also left a planted area under the built-in garden seat for Ferns which together with the rest of the planting in this garden will give that luxuriant green feeling when mature.
The wall was made from limestone which complimented nicely the cobble inserts and edging which we used to break up the curvaceous grey granite patio. The same building stone was used to face the rear of the house and a complimentary rectangular shaped raised bed set against the house. The clients still wanted a lawn for their dog to play on and to soften the hard landscaping, which was included but using artificial grass to reduce maintenance. They also needed a garden shed which we set into the least sunny corner of the garden, surrounded by planting. which will nicely camouflage it when mature.
This garden was designed beautifully by Garden Design Dublin and expertly constructed by Davidstown Contracting and Landscaping.
