Back Garden Landscaping. Swords, Dublin.

swords dublin, garden landscaping

It’s kind of hard to explain the actual how an unbuilt garden picture [see before pic/ vid] in my head type dream becomes a real space that is something of the now present, great or better.

And, more often here I analogise that to falling or being in love, because essentially the [your] garden is a place or space that makes you feel something, of which you smiling as a minimum should be, the end result.

Before I get to where I’m going, go see the before works started image/ video below.

Back Garden Landscaping. Ballinteer, Dublin

There are very many reasons why I love so much what it is I do as my work, if I might call it that.

Second place to the top of that pile for most gardens, for me, is the what it was before hand to the what it has become. That in mind, this little ditty sits right up there with the very best of them.

Patio Choices: Travertine

I absolutely love this stone. And it is without question probably the sexiest stone I have ever worked with. Asked to describe it, my slightly oddball to some head told it as such:

It’s like walking into a room and your old school long-haired never grew out of the seventies mate is there. In my heart I am still him. But not unlike Samson, I got my hair cut. Anyhow, he’s sitting in a mildly disheveled armchair wearing a pair of ripped jeans and a Led Zep t-shirt. The Stones are playing on vinyl in the background and a he’s supping a drop of Middleton Very Rare from a crystal tumbler he acquired from his local tavern. And whether or not you would like it to be something different, you and I both know, he [or it, the paving, in this case] has got that little bit of class some quite simply can only ever hope to achieve. You know it. I know it. And he couldn’t give a sh** either way. Legend.

Garden Landscaping. Monkstown, Co. Dublin.

In the before and after family garden department this space outdoors is pretty much up there with the best of them.

In part that comes down to what it was before hand and what it needed to become. But more it came down to one thing; the Client (I hate that word). It invariably does. And in this case more than any garden ever, they were hand on heart nothing short of genius.

Completed late Feb 2015; To the brief given, it was in this case that they the family, did not use the garden last year and that this 2015, they wished for that to be the opposite.
