This garden, brought to you by Kildare Growers in association with Bord na Mona and Peter O’Brien Landscapes, serves as a place of solitude; a sanctuary space for an owner who has a very hectic lifestyle and values their relaxation time in a beautiful environment. Having a particular love for tranquil and peaceful surroundings, the garden’s design provides an opportunity to escape undisturbed during summer evenings to read, chat, reflect and enjoy peace and silence in a secluded space. Simple in style, the garden’s main feature is a recessed alcove covered with a tilted disc canopy which provides a covered retreat.
