Greencube presents Uber Cool Garden in Tunbridge Wells

Our new garden completed in Tunbridge Wells has most definitely been awarded the 'uber cool badge' with its dynamic use of space, sweeping arc layout, cantilevered oak bench, division of zones by deck boards flush with paving, granite paving and coping, strip flame fire, tropical mix of lilies, palms, pittosporums and the best lighting I've ever seen!

I spent last night at my clients with the landscape contractor Colin from Creative Landscapes whose team have been working hard on this garden throughout the winter months and lighting Engineer Peter from Greenleaf Lighting. Welcomed with a glass of wine which I sipped slowly shuffling around the garden with camera and tripod at hand taking many photo's, I've selected the best to show.

Greencube's concept behind this design was to create an outdoor living room, pull up the armchairs, light the fire and enjoy being outdoors, this high specification property required a matching garden and we are proud of all involved in the finished article. A garden of many rooms/zones, creating a wonderful social space for all to enjoy. I hope our clients enjoy this garden for many years.

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.
