Stylish, functional garden in Dalkey

This garden was a fully professionally designed landscaping project from start to finish.

Our clients had just moved into their new house and had already gotten Tim Austen Designs to create a stunning back garden design.  The design was not only stylish but also functional for this family.

When we started in the garden it was an overgrown waste area that had not been touched for many years.  The design Tim Austen Designs had created included pathways, planting, water feature, a small bridge as well as paving areas.

We began by creating the pathway around the garden and building the granite bridge.  The pond was then created, which cleverly allows and waste or excess water in the garden flow into the pond.  A paving area was created using ceramic tiles.  This separates the pond from the summer house (which is yet to be installed).

Finally the lawn area was laid and all the planting completed.  Plants we specifically chosen to create a beautiful visual landscape.


"Tom and the team in Foxcover recently undertook a substantial landscaping project for us. I must say we are absolutely delighted with the manner in which the project was reviewed, undertaken and completed. The entire team were highly professional, friendly and unobtrusive as possible. We would have no hesitation in recommending them". Client Barry & Rachel September 2017


“It was a pleasure to work with Tom and his team throughout the project.  They understood my design from the beginning and implemented it expertly in accordance with my plans and our discussions on site.  Communication is something that is required for the successful implementation of a detailed garden project and Foxcover scored 10 out of 10 in this regard.  I look forward to working with them again.” Tim Austen of Tim Austen Garden Designs, September, 2017
