Dublin City Cente
03 December 2014
Garden Design and Landscaping project for a Large Georgian house in Dublin City Centre. Working closely with our client’s designer we came up with a specification and delivered this beautiful city garden connecting old and new.
Our client’s brief was to create as much patio space as possible for entertaining. Being situated in the city centre the garden was heavily overlooked by tall buildings and balconies so mature tree planting was required to achieve a good level of privacy and enclosure. Other items on the brief were a parking area for two large cars a set of iron gates and lions head water feature.
The patio spaces were constructed using a grey limestone edged with a reclaimed Dolphins Barn Brick. These materials contrasted really well and gave a traditional timeless look and feel to the garden. Large Espalier Hornbeam trees line one of the main overlooked boundaries with specimen evergreen Oak trees giving higher screening to specific parts of the garden. Two lions head water features were placed either side of the central pathway, glimpses of which are given from various parts of the garden.
Large Belfast brick pillars were built to hang the new iron gates from and to create a transition between the car parking area and the rest of the garden. Many other little details make up this garden some of which can be seen in the photos.
