Thyme Walk - Ranelagh, Dublin 6

Our client had renovated their property and needed to design and build the garden within a tight timeline. The decorators were due to start the next week and we were in the middle of completing a job nearby. We were luckily able to help this client with the logistics and discussed everything with their builder. We came in with a fresh approach as their interior designer and builder we not experienced with building gardens.

We were able to move the paving, plants, sand & cement through the house prior to painting and left the garden for 10 days until we were able to start. This allowed us to create minimal damage to the existing work and we managed to create this garden in 5 days. Planting was aligned in groups of 3 and the plants chosen were for low maintenance but structural. The walls needed to be dressed so we cladded and painted them to create a warmer, more private garden.

We used an old granite window sill as a focal bench and also as a sun trap.

The pathway to the end of the garden was lined with thyme and will fill in with time. Hydrangea Annabella was planted along the wall along with some shaped bay. Lavender and stipa tenufolia were planted together along with Verbena to provide a contrast next to the house. We also planted nadina domestica and some Japanese maples.

The garden was lit up with spot lights on selected specimens and lighting was recessed into the low wall. Overall this garden was created with a low budget in mind and we allocated much of the budget to planting.
