Oast House Garden Completed

We are now nurturing our completed garden in Offham, Kent.

A wonderful Oast house and granary now with a great garden that works contextually with the building and lifts the property. It truly has transformed this property. We are very pleased and often hear from our clients their delight in their new green space.

A visit to Keukenhof and nursery visit in Boskoop

What a wonderful couple of days myself and good friend and fellow Garden Designer Catherine Clancy had in Amsterdam.

Full of colour, perfection and inspiration, Keukenhof at its 'peak'. Pure Bulb perfection. I took over 600 photos on my visit which is why it has taken me so long to choose some of my favourites to share on our blog on this bank holiday Monday!

A truly inspiring, magical place visited on the 21st April 2017.

Gabion wall looking great in Sevenoaks

I returned to a garden that we designed over 7 years ago this week, we are doing some additional design work for the rest of the garden. Gabion wall has weathered in nicely, here we have used boulders and large pebbles of varying sizes. A great way to hold back a hillside.

Fabulous spring time!

Boy we are busy this month, I'm working over the easter weekend to enable me to catch up a bit. But just had to grab my camera and capture this wonderful moment in my own garden this morning.

Here are a mix of tulips including Tulipa Brown Sugar, Tulipa Merlot and Fritallaria Lutea and Euphorbia 'FireGlow'.
