Bring the Coun­try to You

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

‘COUN­TRY liv­ing’ is a re­cur­ring theme sought af­ter by new home buy­ers, self-builders and those mak­ing home im­prove­ments. And it’s no sur­prise that the warmth and charm associated with ‘coun­try-chic’ is so com­monly as­pired to – this theme of­fers time­less style and char­ac­ter. Many peo­ple that live in ur­ban ar­eas be­lieve this style is unattain­able for prop­er­ties in a town set­ting, but that is not the case. With the land­scape de­sign pos­si­bil­i­ties avail­able nowa­days, you don’t even have to live in the coun­try to get a sense of coun­try liv­ing! Tober­more land­scape de­signer and award-win­ning colum­nist, Vanessa Drew, of­fers some in­spi­ra­tion on how to achieve this: “For smaller spa­ces, a cottage gar­den can pro­vide a cosy sanc­tu­ary from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the sur­round­ing town and the stresses of every­day life. The ad­di­tion of bench seat­ing with flo­ral cush­ions and space-sav­ing shelves for pot­ted plants can be used to add per­son­al­ity and func­tion.

“For larger spa­ces, a court­yard gar­den of­fers a multi-pur­pose area for se­cluded re­lax­ation, host­ing par­ties and pro­vides a safe space for chil­dren to roam. Fea­tures such as shabby-chic style ta­ble and chairs for al­fresco din­ing, wooden arch­ways and the cre­ation of paths are ideal for cre­at­ing the court­yard look.”

Tober­more of­fer some beau­ti­ful paving prod­ucts that evoke rus­tic style. Th­ese prod­ucts are ideal for cre­at­ing a tra­di­tional out­door space – so Tober­more can help bring the coun­try to you, no mat­ter where your home is lo­cated!
