The Coastal Garden – Easy Steps to Dream Gardens

About the Garden - Large Show Garden

Originally designed for Bord Bia’s Easy Steps to Dream Gardens, this east-facing coastal garden has been created to suit our coastal environments. Designed to be robust, it will tolerate locations with windy conditions but it will also work just as well inland. It can be tailored to suit any household garden within our towns and cities or adapted for larger gardens in a country setting. 
The design divides the garden into three main contrasting family spaces, each connected by interesting paving and softened with an array of easy to care for plants, hedges, and trees that are ideal for the novice gardener to manage. You can find more about the design, including the planting plan and plant list, here.
