Ballynacourty Garden


45 years ago Ballynacourty was surrounded by open fields, today the gardens extend to approximately 3 ha.

Soil depth is critical as this is a limestone area with stone outcrops close to the surface. The garden is designed as a series of small gardens all interlinked.

One garden has a laburnum waalk underplanted with lavender, another has vegetables (just enough for the house use) another is full of soft fruit and flowers for picking.
