Oftentimes, when we think of our home décor style, we can forget about our gardens, focusing all of our time and energy on the inside of our homes and neglecting our outdoor space. If you are lucky enough to have a private garden, it can be extremely rewarding to spend some time and money re-vamping it into a space that you love. There’s nothing quite like a hot summer day in Ireland sitting outside in a relaxing, comfortable, and beautiful garden with friends and family. If you want to transform your garden into a space that’s as beautiful as it is functional all year round, here are some tips on how to get started. In this blog, we will run through some of the most popular garden landscaping designs, all of which can be implemented in your garden no matter how large or small.
Japanese Garden Landscaping
Japanese gardens are famous for their beauty, making them an extremely popular garden style choice. These gardens are characterised by delicate water features, lots of earthy colours, natural stone, and plenty of clever, planned paving. Many of these gardens have hidden spots to relax in and make use of exotic foliage like Japanese Maple trees and Peonies. Japanese Gardens are an ideal choice for smaller gardens as they make great use of space without taking over the garden and creating clutter. They can also be very easy to maintain when planned correctly. O’Brien Facilities can help you curate a Japanese garden in your home, offering full site clearance and project management services to take care of your garden renovation from beginning to end. With a team of experienced planners, landscapers, and project managers, we can create your ideal Japanese garden professionally and quickly, with as little stress as possible.
Modern Garden Landscaping
If you’re looking for a stylish and contemporary garden, why not opt for a modern-style garden landscaping service? Modern landscaping is defined by an architectural approach and usually consists of clean lines, well-maintained lawns, paving, and contemporary garden furniture. Trees, shrubs, and flowers in these gardens are usually very well-maintained and planned to grow in specific places such as large pots or boxes. Modern gardens are fantastic for larger spaces, as their emphasis is on space. The modern garden design is fantastic for families, offering space and room to host parties and gatherings such as birthday parties or other celebrations. O’Brien Facilities offers Limerick landscaping services that not only plan, design and construct your modern garden, but can also maintain it afterwards, with full scheduled garden maintenance services available.
English Garden Landscaping
Once thought of as an outdated style of landscaping, the English cottage garden has been gaining traction in recent years and has massively resurged in popularity of late. Interestingly, this style of garden landscaping design emerged in England in the early 18th century and soon gained popularity across the UK and Ireland. This style of landscaping rebels against clean lines and strict planning, opting instead for a slightly wild and untamed style of garden. English gardens are characterised by plenty of colour and varieties of plants including shrubs, trees, and flowers. This foliage is minimally maintained, letting it grow wild to create a busy, colourful, and luscious outdoor space. The English garden is perfect for people who want to bring a feel of natural beauty into their outdoor space, and works well in attracting wildlife such as bees, birds, and insects.
