Location: Moyville, Rathfarnham, Dublin
Work: Gravel Driveway, Sandstone Path, Steps, Planting and Bin Area
The BriefOur brief was remove the existing tarmac and concrete and to widen the entrance to the driveway.
We were also to create a area were the bins were to be stored out of view both from the road and the living room window. New steps were to be installed.
The ResultWe moved the pier creating a more generous entrance. We placed a tobermore bracken sett apron to retain the gravel. Using a tobermore kerbstone border to gentle curve up to the new sandstone pathway of the house.This border also defined the planting and bin area. We created a small curved path to access the bins and installed a low curved fence to hide the bins from view. The original step was quiet steep. Widening and adding another step made the entrance more gradual and safer.
