URBAN JUNGLE

This urban garden project was faced with challenges. The site had a very steep gradient and the clients could not maximise the use of their garden. After removing 100 tons of soil and rebuilding retaining walls both on the boundary and within the garden a plan unfolded that had ‘all the boxes ticked for the family’. With edgy urban elements of steel, burnt timber and an exotic plant plan, combined with green roofs, the clients now have a garden quite unique!
A bold closed roof structure with a seating area is great for entertaining, so I’m told, while being private and catching the sun. It has a Sedum roof pleasing on the eye from the upstairs windows and also kind to the environment.
The lawn with the sport wall built for Hurley practice keeps the lads happy while the small shed buried into the retaining walls functions well for gardening needs.
This garden has been planted just eight months now and it will take a few years for the plants to mature and really show their true potential. I will look forward to the return visit.
