Land art and reflective pool in our Hadlow Garden

We were planting in Hadlow last week, adding a little greencube magic......

This is our second garden for our clients who lived in Sevenoaks and now own this very large new build house in Hadlow. A small bungalow which was eventually knocked down replaced with a contemporary family home with white render, grey windows and cedar cladding.

We have enjoyed working on this scheme with pared back planting palette in silvers, purples and many ornamental grasses. This will really look stunning in the spring and summer of next year. We have matched the materials with white render, cedar decking and dark grey granite to match the windows.

We have also had fun designing a piece of land art, sculpted beautifully by contractors KS Groundworks. 

Bringing a fun element and change in level to what is a very flat open space. hiding the parked cars and shed as well as the boundary and neighbour's properties. This is it's new winter look, in summer it will be covered in meadow flowers.

The reflective black pool with 'floating steps' looks great, creating an interesting transition from one zone to another.

Black granite supplied by Rock Unique.

We are returning in the next couple of weeks to finish with purple beech hedge and hundreds of purple tulips and alliums.

The dramatic swathes of plants will be clipped to form artistic textural brush strokes, like a contemporary painting but in 3D in the landscape.
