When we get the weather, it's our national duty to make the most of it. With that in mind, we've collected a selection of beautiful outdoor spaces that may spark some ideas for your own little patch of the world.
1. Pot it
Simple yet impactful, this vertical garden is perfect for small spaces, particularly for homes that have extended right up to the garden's end. For an Irish climate, try ferns and spider plants or if it's a particularly sunny wall, garden herbs will thrive in warmer months.
Leafy tropical plants soften up this modern decking, and who wouldn't want to get comfortable in those butterfly chairs once the sun sets and the fire pit gets going?
3. Canvas creativity
4. Go Wild
One for the wild at heart, helping children identify wildflowers is also a lovely way to while away some time. Pick common flowers, leaving the roots behind, before pressing into a book and naming them.
5. Holiday style
This tiled and tiered garden was designed to increase the amount of natural light entering the basement level of a residence in Ranelagh. We love the mix of Mediterranean brights and how the sunny dining area is surrounded with leafy greens.
