PETER DONEGAN (PETER DONEGAN GARDEN DESIGN)

“The BAM Stone Garden” is an exquisite representation of a love story that transcends time and distance.


This contemporary garden portrays the tale of two hearts separated by a small island off the coast of Galway to the mainland. The design aims to take visitors on a journey through a rocky, maritime landscape, reminiscent of the journey made across the Atlantic from the Connemara coast.


The garden features a series of natural steppingstones that elegantly weave through the landscape, leading visitors to an island of tranquillity. Here, a single large, bright Liriodendron tulipifera tree stands tall, providing a beacon of hope to those who wish to return to their loved ones.


The key elements of “The BAM Stone Garden” include water, natural stone paving, boulders, and lush planting. To further enhance the garden’s appeal, a portal dolmen-esque stone structure with a stone table and seating has been incorporated, allowing visitors to relax and appreciate the natural beauty of the surroundings.
