We produced a garden plan and 3D images for this front garden design project in Portmarnock, Co. Dublin. A common request by clients is to design a low maintenance garden and this front garden had to fulfill this brief.

The design is based around a raised circular lawn with granite cobble edging. The garden boundary is lined with a new trellis and Portuguese laurel hedge, giving it definition and structure. The driveway edge has been extended using a pea-gravel and nida-gravel stabiliser surface. A plum slate dresses the planting beds and a mixture of herbaceous , shrubs, grasses and a single Japanese maple specimen will fill out to from a full planting bed over time.

Overall the result is a crisp, modern and low maintenance design for this seaside front garden.
