Garden Transformations: Bench Seating & Bedders

Every Saturday we are looking at gardens that have been recently transformed by expert landscapers and gardens for less than €5,000. It's not too late in the Irish summer to transform your garden on a budget and without breaking the bank or your back. Check out all our Garden Transformations here...


Bench Seating & Bedders

(null) (7)Here Wildes Landscape Architecture built this gorgeous bench seating bedders and patio areas for a client in Dublin.

Damien Wildes of WLA was asked to focus mainly on one side of the garden so that their clients could maximise the use of the sunshine throughout the day:

We had  constructed a patio area a few months previous and the challenge was to design and create an installation to act as both a transition space and seating area.

(null) (5)Damien’s idea was to design a simple structure but use high end materials such as Black Slate cladding and Cedar timber to give the space a lift and its own unique feel.

Finishing off the garden with some textured planting, the majority of which are evergreen, means that the garden not only functions well as a space but provides a view to enjoy from the house all year round.

In total this project (excluding the patio) cost approximately €4,000 – €5,000.
