What have we been upto in the last couple of weeks:
We have been busy with new enquiries in Chislehurst, Leybourne, Collier Street, Sevenoaks, Green Street Green and West Wickham. We may be in an economic crisis and you would expect luxury services like Garden Design to be hit hard, but we have had the opposite effect, our best year to date and an increase of enquiries up by 35.7 % from last year.
I designed some cantilevered oak steps to provide better circulation in a garden with oak retaining walls, Clayton from Quest Landscapes did a great job on the construction. The paddlestones have now arrived and ready for the the curvy wall, very exciting.
We put the Brentwood garden to bed for the winter. Looks stunning with its crisp yew hedges contrasting with the wispy textural grasses - Miscanthus, Stipa and Calamagrostis. All the perennials have been cut back leaving the backbone structure for the winter, its such a contrast from the summer colourful display. We were also on hand with the second phase of this garden, we will return in the spring to complete the planting.
We have planted phase 1 of a garden in Shenfield Essex, good job by Team Greencube - Alick and Abbie, great team work all raised planters and border planted in a day.
We have planted 3000 bulbs in 3 gardens in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Chislehurst. Should be a great display next spring.
We have completed designs in Sevenoaks, Leigh, Tunbridge Wells x 2, Planting design for a small garden in Catford and Bexley in the last couple of weeks. It really has been full on.
We are working with Colin at Creative Landscapes on a garden in Tunbridge wells that we designed back in the summer, work starts in a couple of weeks and I'm very much looking forward to seeing this completed and working with Creative Landscapes on such a high spec. garden.
I'm having a well earned break week commencing 28th - need to recharge.
