We love to mix palettes of contrasting materials

Here we have mixed textural paddlestones with smooth porcelain paving and hardwood decking. This garden completed last year is maturing nicely with a little help from our aftercare team. Dicksonia tree ferns add a structural/tropical flavour, underplanted with our favourite Hakoechloa grass.

Garden in Bexley

We've also been out planting bulbs this week including this newly completed garden in Bexley, which includes a Solus Bio ethanol firebowl which sits within a fireplace creating a wonderful focal point and gorgeous seating area, surrounded by large troughs planted with perennials and ornamental grasses.

I'll return in the spring to get some photos of this wonderful garden.

Green Wall Installation

We have installed three vertical green walls into a larch clad wall in our garden in Greenwich

living art installations - they have knitted together wonderfully. We planted these in July. They are automatically fed and watered, they need a little bit of TLC every 4 to 6 weeks.

Knapped flint paths Arts and Crafts House in Sevenoaks

I certainly need to factor more time to promote our finished gardens. Here's another......


Here's another garden completed last autumn and photos taken this summer. This garden is in Sevenoaks, the house has been renovated over a period of time and the garden was the last major project to complete. We have really enjoyed working with this couple who are very happy with the end result.


We have used knapped flint, dutch clay pavers and belgium blue paving


Lots of purple and white with a hint of orange and silver.

and so here's what it looked like before........

Our New Front Garden in Sevenoaks

Check out our new corten steel garden with sculptural feature logstore in Sevenoaks, this very stylish easy to maintain front garden oozes originality, simple maintenance and maximum parking with eco Suds approved resin bound gravel paired with dutch clay pavers. We have planted some wonderful multi-stemmed Osmanthus and some very large spherical arbutus unedo.

still posting our late summer images.....

here's a lovely garden we designed and planted in Offham near West Malling a gorgeous oast house which has been sympathetically restored and refurbished, now looking amazing. This garden has had time to fill out and mature. I took these photos last month, greencube now do the aftercare/maintenance, Gemma and Benita work in this garden monthly.

The local kent ragstone from the quarry retain the level changes, teamed with a limestone paving that connects lovely with the traditional oast house.

Gravel courtyard runs the same diameter around the Oast roundel, squaring off at the barn end. We have also installed hop poles with climbers homage to the original farming use.

Here are some photos taken early summer 2017 that include the ragstone cascading pond
