Greencube gardens published in two magazines this month

It's always a huge compliment when I see our gardens published in magazines, sharing our hard work, inspiration and ideas with the world. We have seen my Hampton Court, Gold medal winning Garden of 2010 published in a magazine in the Netherlands this month. This is the forth time I've seen my garden featured in a dutch magazine or book. They kindly sent me a copy. The magazine is called Groei & Bloei, which translates to 'Growth and Bloom' and they featured a 4 page article about the garden. Here are the scans of the magazine.

I've also been contacted by Hadlow College this week who sponsored the Hampton Court Garden as they are about to re-build it at Hadlow, Broadview Gardens and needed some information. I'll have to take a sneaky peak once they start progressing, be great to see it built again.


Our lovely Ide Hill, Sevenoaks, Kent garden featured in the Society of Garden Designers journal this month also.  Featuring the waterblade cascading into the pebbles.

This is one of my favourite gardens and I'm revisiting in the spring to take some shots of the Tulips.

Here's a few more photos taken in the summer of last year.


I chose Persicaria amplex 'Taurus' as the this border was at the lowest point of the garden with a high water table, as you can see the plant loves it. Flowers all summer.


The cantilevered oak bench worked well in the curvy ragstone wall.


The ragstone detail is repeated in the floor plane as well as in the wall, this ties in with the 100 year old barn that has been built with ragstone. The paving is Oken sandstone supplied by Rock Unique.






Acanthus spinosis is planted in bold swathes along the top more free draining border.


The rag panels divide the zones and the large box balls create structure.


The curvy wall with cantilevered oak seat is a great place to sit and rest.





The deck area is surrounded by a ragstone wall creating a cosy nook for my clients to enjoy.


The kent oast house sets the scene for this wonderful rural location.

and at night it looks amazing, its always worth investing in some great lighting to extend the use of the garden.

Sculpture in the garden, greencube designs a sculptural ball garden

I'm still out taking photos of all the gardens that have been constructed in the last year and last night I visited our clients in Borough Green, Kent to photograph this garden. We designed the terracing around this very beautiful home and picked up on the existing buff coloured stone detailing that formed the sills and frames around the doors and windows. A complimentary colour  of yellow granite was finally chosen (Yellow Granite paving from CED) and a sculptural border of yellow granite balls (from Rock Unique) underplanted with Ilex crenata balls and Libertia grandiflora. Oak benches and oak arches have also been included and some division of zones created by deck laid flush with granite. This scheme fuses well with the house and setting. I will return in August to take further photos when the garden furniture is in place and hopefully get some night shots, lighting not yet fully completed at time of visit. Greencube planted this garden in two phases, the trees, ro

greencube's garden in Langton Green, near Tunbridge Wells features in Dutch Magazine this month

Our large garden in Langton Green  designed back in 2010 features in a Dutch magazine for April - Groei & Bloei , I had to use google translator to work out what they said: dutch "door efficient gebruik te maken van niveauverschillen ontstaan op een klein oppervlak twee terrassen, gescheiden door een prachtige plantenbak, die tevens dienst doet als regleuning van de zitbank." literally translates to: "through efficient use of level differences arising on a small surface two terraces, separated by a beautiful planter, who also serves as backrest of the sofa." my dutch is not too good! Here are some more photos of this garden:

Practical storage solutions in our gardens in Tunbridge Wells and Folkestone

Storage in a garden is a common requirement but often forgotten or positioned too far away for practical use. Greencube have installed solutions in 2 of our gardens this year without the need for an ugly shed.   The built in seating has doubled up as a great practical storage solution so that the cushions, hand tools and firewood for the brazier are readily available.
