Contemporary Garden Design

Location: Ballsbridge, Dublin 4

Status: completed Summer 2017


Set in Leafy Dublin 4, The site consists of a front and back garden. The brief was to create a garden that was in keeping with the area and complement the contemporary clean lines of the new house. The hard landscaping palette consisted of Black Kilkenny Limestone Patios with detailed with complementary random length strips of paving. The reflection pool has a 50mm Limestone edge surround and picks up magnificent reflections of the building and garden greenery.

The curved nida-gravel driveway at the front has a smooth flowing edge of stone washed Kilkenny Limestone Cobbles, laid as soldiers givingĀ  a generous proportioned edge to the pea-gravel surfaced driveway.

Specimen plants throughout the garden create key focal points from various angles along with under planting of ferns and shrubby type plants giving structure and maturity to the garden.
