Family garden design landscaping in Terenure

For our latest project we are in Terenure, this time to re-design and re-landscape the garden belonging to an old property which had recently been sold and refurbished by the builders on behalf of the new owners.

We were commissioned to develop a new design for the garden and complete the landscaping, incorporating specific requirements of the new owners. Initial progress was proving slow, which was caused by the poor weather, making site conditions very wet and difficult.

Still we seek whenever possible (weather permitting) to work our way through our long schedule of landscaping works. Once we had marked out the site and discussed and agreed any adjustments with the owners, we set about the construction of the raised patio and rendering of boundary walls.

The site is a good size and ground conditions are also good and level. Our plans include building a number of interesting features and the expectations are high all round. The construction as well as the planting specifications are all of a high order, and I am very excited about this project.

Marking the design on the ground facilitates any changes to be discussed
