Rathmines - Belgrave Square Front Garden


Rathmines, Dublin 6

Project Type

Private Garden

Date Completed

10 June 2014


Garden Design and Landscape construction project for an 1850’s Protected House in Rathmines. We had completed the front garden of this property a few months previous. The existing garden was raised above basement level and retained by a low wall with two sets of steps up.

Our clients brief was to create a formal garden layout connecting spaces with materials and planting and to create patio areas to maximise the limited sun getting into the garden. The garden was also to be a space to display our clients many beautiful garden sculptures.

The agreed garden design sees the installation of two new granite patios connected with a gravel strip in between and surrounded by cobble edged planting beds. New widened granite steps were installed as well as granite capping to the existing walls. A formal line of Pittosporum (evergreen) hedge lines the back wall with a reed screen installed as a back drop to the planting beds.

All plants were selected with our client at our 30 acre nursery in North Dublin. The selection sees specimen Japanese
Maples and a mix of colourful shrubs perennials and grasses to give all year round colour and interest in
the garden.
