June Blake's Garden

June Blake's garden is a rare fusion of inspired design and painterly planting. Situated in the townland of Tinode in west Wicklow, and spread over three rural acres, it wraps itself around June's home, a handsome Victorian farm-steward's cottage surrounded by a huddle of austerely beautiful, granite-stone farm building.

In a previous life, Blake was a gifted jewellery maker. Those same carefully honed skills- a razor sharp eye and keen attention to detail, an artist's deep appreciation of colour, texture and form, as well as the ability to take a raw, unpolished material and expertly craft it into something aesthetically deeply satisfying- still shine through brightly in her excitingly contemporary country garden.

The garden includes intricately planted borders of gem-like beauty, swathes of naturalistic, prairie-style planting, sculptural landforms, a flower meadow and generous stretches of woodland, and a formal, rectangular "reflection" pool.
