Monkstown large garden

The house had just been renovated and this large garden was left looking sorry. With a young family as the occupiers a very simple design was drawn up for this space. As the garden was on a large slope 2 sets of steps were added to split the level to allow for a large lawn for ball playing and the bottom area was used for a sunken trampoline and swing set for the kids. 2 of the larger apple trees were retained and some large trees and shrub planting were added to soften the feel of the whole space. The stone used around the lawn is eqyptian limestone and the steps are finished in wood effect porcelain tiles
