We have been working closely with Creative Landscapes on this project, greencube have designed a layout for this garden that quite frankly you ought to be a 'billy goat' to get to the top. Sevenoaks gardens are often challenging due to the interesting topography....... we have cut into hillsides, retained with gabions , have designed block built walls with rendered finishes and now we are completing the almost impossible.
Never shy of a challenge, we have taken inspiration from Patrick Blanc's vertical living artwork and also Thames Barrier Park with the near vertical Lonicera greenwalls. Here we have created a planted bank that will, I know look amazing! Maintenance friendly and a 'living art' installation.
Over 2300 plants were delivered on Tuesday of this week and the guys have worked their socks off on a difficult terrain to get this planted. This bank is almost level with eaves of the house. So we had to take the plants up a flight of stairs before even starting the planting..
First we started with plant moodboard and inspiration:
Plants delivered and plants laid out to the planting design. I'll post some photos on completion and when its all knitted together.
