Planting combinations are very important, here we have mixed our favourite Rose of the Year, Rosa 'Gertrude Jekyll' mixed with Panicum (ornamental grass) and underplanted with Erigeron, enclosed within a large border of taxus baccata (yew) that skirts a driveway entrance.
Keep dead heading all summer and reap the rewards. Our greencube maintenance gardener Gemma looks after this garden in Sevenoaks.
A modern and traditional palette of plants to tie in with the 'old coach house' dating back to 1836 with a 21st century spin.
Here we have mounted pots on top of old coach house brick platforms and installed statuesque obelisks.
We have also placed a copy Lutyens bench which was designed at the same time as the property was built. Sir Edwin Lutyens an architect and designer of furniture, a little bit of history to look back at, we have painted the bench in the same farrow and ball colour - Teresa's green, the bench sits within a border now full of Allium christophii, Hydrangea, Papaver 'Patsy's Plum' and Salvia 'Caradonna'.
Papaver - just about to open.
Greencube delivered the design, planting and maintenance, also managing the planning application and project monitoring throughout.
Langdale Landscapes did a fab job on all the hardscapes.
