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, root ball yew hedges and Ilex crenata hedges were planted in February and the rest of the planting went in during the spring of 2013.


  1. Where can I get these concrete balls? How do you make them? I love it!

  2. Love the Garden, looking for ideas, Porcelain Patio being laid soon, keen for it not to look like a 'blob' of slabs.
