This exclusive scheme of detached houses is nestled in a loose mature woodland area in Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow, in one of Ireland’s most picturesque and sought after residential areas in Ireland.
The landscape design of this low density scheme will aim to produce an environment of exceptional quality. A positive link with the wildlife and conservation of the, which is an Area of Scientific Interest (Knocksink Wood), is provided through extensive tree planting of indigenous trees.
Winding dry riverbeds planted with willows and alders are meandering alongside the access road and the North boundary of the site to absorb excess rainwater. Extensive specimen tree and screen planting is carried out under the existing mature tree canopy and site boundary. Planted mounds and semi-mature woodland planting is proposed to the North and West of the site.
The landscape features will not only help to provide pleasant surroundings for future occupiers of the houses, but to assimilate the scheme into the development site and reduce visual contrast with the surrounds. The scheme is currently considered by the planning authorities.
