This was a large suburban garden in North Dublin that had an additional area of dead space 7m2 facing off a new kitchen/ breakfast extension to the family house. The brief was to carry out some landscaping to the main back garden, while the focus of the project was to transform the additional dead space that was independent of the main garden. This was done by creating an exotic and contemporary courtyard garden that could be used for relaxation and entertaining. The client also wanted to enjoy a view of the courtyard garden while sitting at the breakfast table. Bespoke features included a water feature in the form of a reflecting pool made from mild steel to create an atmosphere of tranquillity in the garden. Bespoke tapered steel hedge bookends were installed as an architectural feature adding interest to the garden. Larch slatted screening with bands of black charred slats were used on the courtyard walls to enhance the tropical feel of the garden. As the client has a strong connection with Kerry, planting included a Killarney Strawberry tree (Arbutus Unedo), an Eriobotrya japonica tree and tree ferns to further enhance the exotic design. Garden lightening included a zinc down light and several spotlights to complete a spectacular look at night.
