This is a very impressive piece of work on Dublin’s north side, recently completed, with great attention to detail throughout every aspect of the scheme, perfectly laid silver granite, Tobermore paving and gravel, great edging, trellis work, artificial lawn for golf practice, well established lawn, mulching and planting that will mature to provide increased privacy and balance with some of best hard landscaping we judged this year. Another example of Saxa deploying a wide range of skills including lighting, irrigation and large specimen planting.  Well done to Aaron and his team.”
