Looms & Blooms – 300 Years of Avoca

About the Garden - Medium Show Garden

The Avoca 300-year anniversary garden celebrates Avoca’s heritage and marks three centuries of weaving in its Wicklow mill. While nodding to Avoca’s rich history, the garden design has a contemporary feel. The latest material trends are incorporated, illustrating how Avoca is at the forefront of modern design. 

Users can immerse themselves in the sunken space at the centre of the garden. A feature steel pergola creates dappled shade from the sun to mimic threads of yarn; the most important component of Avoca’s 300-year story.  

The water feature creates the visual effect of a loom, while copper also features in the design as a nod to the early copper mines in Avoca village. The garden has both shaded and sun areas. Lush green ferns draw in the deep green of Wicklow, while perennials connect with Avoca’s long-standing love of colour.
