Beachfront Deck At Inchydowney, Co. Cork

Fox Gardens from Cork Inchydoney, West Cork

This garden was for a client that had a lovely beachfront property but because of the slope had no space for entertaining. The client wanted to include an element of sculpture so we designed a curved deck surrounded by a copper planter. The planter meant that they would have no need for a rail or balustrade, and the choice of Feather Grass for the planting was intended to flow with the wind and emulate the dunes thereby nestling into the landscape. Exposed to the elements the copper will eventually “verdi gris” and turn that beautiful bluey green colour.

Bloom Winning Garden 2010

Fox Gardens from Cork Clanwilliam Court, Dublin 2

Fox Garden Design took top prize in the engaging space category for our "Islands" garden at Bloom 2010. The design concept contrasts what we see in nature - with 3 rolling islands of land surrounded by the stillness of water. The first island is planted with a soft flowing carpet of small blue daisies. A central island is planted with grass for sitting, and the third island is planted with a graceful sedge. The garden is clad with Liscannor dry stone walling from Clare.

Bloom Medal Winner 2011

Fox Gardens from Cork Phoenix Park, Dublin 8

The Bloom garden is simply called The Orb - A space for celebration. As the name suggested, this garden was created for celebrating with friends and family in circles of interleaving social spaces, features and planting. At the heart of this garden is the Orb. Inspired by Chinese lanterns, it's the bright space at the center of any party. The Orb offers secluded seating, enticing patterns of light and glimpses of the surrounding lush planting. To the left stands a lustrous copper beech. To the right, a Kilkenny limestone circle with a hand crafted stone barbecue. A curve of hedging floats through water and stepping-stones lead into the main garden. In the background, the pale leaves of a Tulip tree catch the light. We got together with Glenisk at Bloom 2011.
