Member of ALCI - Association of Landscape Contractors of Ireland

In 2007, Earthworks joined the ALCI, which is the Association of Landscape Contractors in Ireland. This body is a recognised body which promotes very high standards of work & has just reached its 100 member status. One of the big events for the ALCI is the awards ceremony which is held in October of each year. There are a number of sectors within the awards which can be checked out at www.alci.ie. For the past 2 years now, we at Earthworks have picked up an award for two different categories. In 2007, we received an award for our garden in The National Garden Exhibition Centre and in 2008, we received an award for private gardens under €13000. This garden was for a private client in Dalkey.


2008 Award Winning Garden

In 2008, Earthworks received the award for private gardens under €13,000. This garden was designed & built for a private client, Therese Crowley in Dalkey. The brief was to build a Moroccan garden in the 'Yard' as she called it. A permanent bench was constructed which was rendered and capped with 'Arroco' hardwood timber to which you could sit & catch the sun no matter what time of day. The tiles were chosen to include a border tile & were fitted onto a pre-constructed concrete plinth. Planting was subtly added to the garden to represent the Moroccan theme throughout. The Crowleys now see the garden as a valuable addition to their house and use it like an extra room. Overall, the garden is a great success & there for many years of enjoyment.

The garden has been featured in The Sunday Times (5MB) and also The Sunday Business Post.

National Garden Exhibition Centre
The NGEC is a collection of gardens designed and built by landscapers in a purpose built arena. In February 2007, Earthworks Landscape Services were approached by the proprietor of the NGEC to design and build a garden on location. We wanted to create a garden that was different by design, materials & approach. A garden called 'Tranquillity' was constructed, one of structure and form with a modern twist using gabions to form a series of terraces and rooms.

The garden has proved a big success for Earthworks and was critically acclaimed by the landscape industry where we received an award of merit in October 2007.
