Make your own statement in Dublin suburbs

The Riverside Retreat Permanent Showgarden [vc_separator type="normal" position="left" color="#5bb0cd" border_style="solid" width="100%" thickness="2" up="20" down="20"] Tim was commissioned by the National Garden Exhibition Centre in Wicklow to create a permanent garden based on his ‘Inspiration from Mount Usher’ show garden. They were particularly keen to see a version of the water feature replicated at the Centre. The garden that Tim’s team created was adjusted to suit the space available, which was a different shape to Bloom and with a view that this is to be garden that starts small and develops with time, like any...
