A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT US
We are an award-winning, garden design company based in Dunshaughlin, Co Meath. Using the clean and simple lines of contemporary garden design, we look at creating a graceful harmony between your house and garden to provide a unique outdoor living space that can be enjoyed all year round.
We are truly passionate about building bespoke gardens as outdoor living spaces that reflect your lifestyle. Using an architectural setting for many of our garden designs, we create beautiful gardens for both relaxation and entertaining. Our landscape garden designer oversees the whole project from design concept to construction and completion. This ensures that our clients get a very coherent and personalized service.
In collaboration with Shomera we have recently launched our new STEPPING OUT range of garden designs at our display garden at the Shomera Village in Dunshaughlin Business Park, Co Meath. We have created a space here that marries the elegant, minimalist architecture of Shomera garden rooms & studios with the clean and simple lines of our contemporary garden designs. Clients can see first hand how good garden design can maximise an outdoor living space by creating a garden as an outdoor room. House extensions can be beautifully integrated with stylish low maintenance gardens to be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors. An appointment booking service is available for prospective clients who would like to meet our garden designer Russell Shekleton for a free consultation.
