Soft Landscaping

Quality Workmanship

The heavy tasks of hard landscaping complete much of the preparation for the way the land is used.

We source high quality materials and apply our skill and experience to exceed client expectations and produce soft landscapes of lasting beauty.

Creating Lawns and Borders

High-grade top soil is a prerequisite for establishing both lush lawns and healthy shrub and perennial borders.

We create lawns by either turf laying or grass seeding, preferring to wait for ideal conditions to guarantee success.

For low maintenance borders, we recommend using a permeable plastic membrane to control weeds. For retaining soil moisture, we use wood chip mulch from natural tree bark, which we source from Cornamona, Mayo.

Planting

We prepare and compost enrich beds before we source, purchase and plant.

 TYPES OF PLANTING
....
Specimen trees and conifers
.... Shrubs - hedges, evergreen shrubs
.... Climbers.
.... Plants - herbaceous perennials

Surface Aggregates

These are used to create a different texture, often where there is little light, or it is difficult to mow.

Sand .... Pebbles
