Ardlui Park, Blackrock

An elevated travertine terrace is framed by a chunky timber pergola. Large, strong rendered columns support the pergola beams and a fountain that feeds a planted fish pool.

The raised terrace is retained by long rendered raised beds planted with fragrant lavender.

A second set of columns support another pergola from which a hammock hangs for an ideal place to read and take in the scents and colours of the Lavender, Portuguese laurel, Olive trees and mixed herbaceous planting.
