Small garden transformed

Ever wondered how top garden designers and landscape contractors manage to transform a small dowdy garden into something wonderful? This time-lapse video, filmed in October/November 2015, shows the skill and ingenuity involved when Tully Landscapes Ltd got to work transforming a small garden in Dublin. You can see the video of the garden two years later here The garden in the video is just 20 foot wide by 28 foot long (6.096m x 8.534m) and suffered from poor drainage. It was dominated by a 1970s vintage concrete garden shed positioned just six feet from the kitchen window. The client wanted a new garden that would have a low maintenance courtyard design, maximise the available space and deal with the drainage and water logging issue. During the initial survey one boundary wall was found to be structurally unsound and required demolition. In addition, it was decided to demolish the end wall and rebuild it incorporating a new, larger garden shed and a relocated back gate. All other existing walls were strengthened. The new garden was designed by Colin Cooney, an award-winning Landscape Architect. The design featured three raised planter beds featuring, respectively, a Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum dissectum Garnet), a Magnolia Heaven Scent and an Olea Europea Forma Toscana (i.e. Olive tree) plus an assortment of bee-friendly plants. The raised planter walls were faced with Donegal Quartz Stone. Video by Karl Martin. With sincere thanks to all the craftsmen featured, without whose co-operation this video would not have been possible. All my videos can be seen at
