Knapped flint paths Arts and Crafts House in Sevenoaks

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

SEVENOAKS



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.

Materials

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


Planting

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.

Now maintained by Gemma and her team at greencube.

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

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!
