As the garden landscaping works for the new garden in Sandyford nears completion, reflecting on this particular project, one is filled with a great sense of pride and satisfaction of the undeniable beauty which we have created in this wonderful new garden.
Confronted by difficult site terrain elements including elevated ground, granite bedrock and not insignificant surface water run-off, all important factors which demanded key consideration during the design phase but most especially during the construction stages. Landscaping on this higher level involving an unusual and perhaps a unique range of site conditions, all of which had to be managed carefully from the outset, if the project was to run smoothly through to a safe and successful conclusion.
A project which has tested our skill, stamina and expertise from the start, has provided us with a great and enviable opportunity, to demonstrate how creative design and impeccable landscaping skills combine to create a stunning composition of lasting beauty of practical layout, enduring crafted construction and an easily managed diversified planting scheme. Inspired by the challenge and encouraged by the potential, one is reminded of the positive beauty and well being of a much greater force.
