This amazing Dublin garden make-over will blow your mind

Katie Mythen-Lynch

Do you dream of transforming your dodgy back yard into an outdoor paradise? If so, prepare to be inspired into grabbing a shovel and getting stuck in.

The Internet has given a collective round of applause to this Dublin homeowner who managed to create a garden space worthy of a Chelsea Flower Show display in just six months.

Starting off with the average barren Irish back garden, user Masmccar76 conquered what every terraced house owner dreams of doing but never (ever) gets around to: a complete design overhaul worthy of a five-star hotel.

Here’s what it looked like before work began:


So far, so average.

Now, thanks to some expert use of space and a little building work to add textured panels, large modern planters and carefully chosen exotic plants, colourful stone and greenery, Masmccar76 is the proud owner of one of the capital’s fanciest terraces:


As if that wasn’t enough, the proud owner added a sheltered cabana, an outdoor bioethanol fireplace (ideal for those winter soirées) and a fabulous pair of custom-made outdoor sofas for maximum al fresco chilling.


Oh yeah, we can totally picture ourselves hosting the summer’s coolest barbecue here, cocktail in hand.

Now, where’s that shovel?
