Dermot called his design "Room Effect" and wants to create areas with different themes that feel like extra rooms in the garden. Just at the back door the homewoner will be able to step down into a sunken area for the whole family, which has a waterfall, artificial grass, surrounded by a natural stone wall. To the back of the garden a paved play area with seating for their children is partially surrounded by a graffiti wall. Finally, a special romantic area for the homeowner with a pergola to give her a place to chill out or have candle lit dinners.
Dermot feels his design has the perfect balance of hard and soft landscaping. He's introducing natural elements in his stone work and using curves and circles to give a nice flow to the garden. His planting scheme of mature trees, structural shrubs and lower beds will soften the hard landscaping and help create movement, it's a garden full of energy.
