Landscaping Dublin: Front and Side Garden Beds

landscaping dublin

The following are a series of front and side garden beds that were created around the one house to better enhance its feel, look and appearance…. that sounds like something I just copy and pasted out of some legal firms website I’m sure, but for now I can’t  think of any other way to write that intro line.

Back to landscaping …And though the front driveway has also to serve a very functional role, [without cars in the images below some may look quite spacious], it is a fine example of what one can do to make your home front so much more inviting and welcoming.

time to wake up…

I was out and about in the garden and it seems nature is actually waking up all around me… It is a little the storm before the calm. The vernalisation period that we [in Ireland] had last week and now are tipping over the ten degrees…

But whilst temperatures may fluctuate – it is essentially the plants choice – when, exactly it is the right time for them to wake up. That aside, I love this time of year. It is so inspirational and for those who put in the little extra graft over the winter period, extremely rewarding.

If you haven’t dabbled in your green pastures yet… now is really time for you to really get started.
