Glebelands And Glebewood Gardens, Ratoath, Co Meath is a rural Georgian house designed in 1813 and Glebewood dating from 1990. The older and more mature garden is set in undulating land, emphasised by skilfully crafted low stone walls and bounded by high indigenous mature trees, augmented 20 years ago by blue cedars, pines, conifers, acres and larch. Glebewood, designed and constructed on 0.5ha of flat featureless land six years ago, had to be radically sculpted and moulded to reflect the rolling characteristics of Glebelands. The aim of the designers was to create an overall atmosphere of interest and relaxation in an environment of ever changing.
