Killeagh Gardens

Killeagh Gardens is an ‘A’ rated housing estate in East Cork.  The housing estate consists of clusters of housing and has a large village square and a large green area.

BHL Landscape Design (now Terry O’Regan & Associates) designed the layout for the open plan areas to the front of the houses in the cluster groups, terraces, rows and the open spaces.  The centre piece of the project is the Village Square.

The Village Square was designed to be a meeting point where people could sit out and children could use the hard landscaped areas to play on bikes etc.  The space was to be modern, functional and add to the character of the estate.
Paving patterns were used to create individual spaces and movement throughout the square.

BHL Landscape Group were employed to undertake the soft landscaping works which included grass seeding, shrub, herbaceous and tree planting.  The pleached trees create the effect of a hedge on stilts.  Pleached trees have to be lined up perfectly as their shape would make any variation in position very apparent.
