Castleknock - Auburn


Castleknock, Dublin 15

Project Type

Private Back Garden

Date Completed

01 December 2014


A garden design and build completed in the depths of winter. This garden had a mix of deck and badly laid sandstone paving and some raised planters and walls. All of the existing decking was rotten and a hazard to walk on. Walls were in bad shape with just a roll out willow matting covering the block work.

Our clients brief was to create an entirely new flat garden which would be child friendly and with more usable space for sitting out or entertaining with friends and family. The garden boundaries needed dressing and a new shed and a covered outdoor clothes drying area were required.

The garden design sees two curved patio areas, one main area for general use and the second as an evening sun trap. Both patios have a contemporary hardwood bench built on a rendered wall. The patios are constructed with a 600x600 yellow granite flags with imperial granite setts as a border. Pressure Treated Ship lap cladding was used to clad the walls and was erected at different heights as per our clients instructions.

To maximise the play space available the planting beds are kept as narrow strips along the boundaries with a generous lawn. A new shed with clothes drying unit was designed in conjunction with Boyne Garden Sheds and fits in along the side of the house very well. Due to the inclement weather at the time of finishing the painting of the walls and cladding were put on hold.
