busy busy busy...... california dreamin'

Gemma was maintaining our garden in Mersham at the end of July and I paid a visit. Garden looking very established, I must return to take some night shots. We call this our 'Californian dreaming garden' and our clients are enjoying it now in its second year.

California reference- the named orange colour for our rendered wall and reference to our lovely client who has worked in California.

Who wouldn't want an explosion of orange on a grey day here in the UK to lift your spirit, make you smile, make you feel warm inside and warm up the grey sky especially in winter?

If you are wanting a garden designed by greencube we are now booking into December 2017, we can come and see you, give you a quote and book your work in our busy schedule. We love challenges!

We have finished another garden in Chelsfield near Orpington

I visited our newly completed garden in Chelsfield, Orpington last week, looking great in the sunshine, such a wonderful transformation and now a wonderful place to look out onto as well as lots of places to sit outside and enjoy surrounded by wonderful planting.

Lots of Hydrangea's, purple perennials, grasses with a backbone of evergreen topiary.

We've just finished a town garden and its looking fab!

Greencube's new garden in Kings Hill

Here we have transformed a blank canvas new build garden into a sleek and special place, balancing tropical plants with some flowering perennials with a repeat of ipe hardwood, black basalt and rendered walls in 3 colours. Hints of orange and purple are injected into the planting scheme contrasting with leafy lush banana, erybotrya and yucca to create form and structure.

I'll return in a few weeks to photograph at night.

Flowering Geum and Geranium giving some colour and seasonal interest. We've had the fence painted black to enhance the colours further.

Press Day - RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2017

I had a wonderful day at Hampton Court Flower Show this month - PRESS DAY visit courtesy of London Stone. Lots of Champagne, Pimms and Seafood on offer. Saw some wonderful, inspirational design, met some new people and caught up with lots from our wonderful industry.

Here we are after lunch

My favourite image taken on the day is of this cabbage, 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder?!'

a visit after a rain shower - garden in Sevenoaks

I really ought to get out to all our gardens more often and take photos  - evolving, maturing and looking fab.

I visited this finished garden in Sevenoaks last week after a rain shower. We have entered it in a National Competition - wish us luck!

Gemma, Emily and Benita look after this one - our aftercare team.

and now we've just completed the front garden, awaiting the planting to mature and I'll be back to take more images, featuring our very popular log store/ Bug hotel and corten retaining walls and planters.
