Irish Landscaping and Gardening Trends

I know I’m at my happiest when I’m in a garden. To be a little more specific, I think it’s a little of that ability to see what can be made beautiful when standing looking at something, sometimes completely wretched. I love the fact that I can see what it can and will be and past the processes that will take it there. A look into the future, photosynthetically speaking if you will.

Landscaping in Ireland has changed. In words, landscaping has been diluted ever so by gardening and there is a big difference between the two.

I’ve noted before the evolution from the epidemics of log roll in the 1980’s through the 1990’s cobble block times to the decking pandemic of the noughties and to today where those decks are now being turned into raised vegetable beds.

Before I go any further, gardens are still being landscaped and the landscaping of gardens is very much on the go. But for some, the space outdoors, its metamorphosis and that journey is one that is happening in a slightly different manner.
