What a busy January...

greencube have had a very busy January with enquiries up by 46 % from last January, normally January is a quiet month. We are normally designing work that we obtained from the previous autumn and planning our planting for the spring season. But we've seen an influx in new enquiries matching a normally busy spring month.




We are currently working on projects in Sevenoaks,  Tunbridge Wells, Matfield and are about to embark on two new projects in Leigh and Stansted.
Gardens are currently being built in Sevenoaks x 3, Loughton, Reigate and Bidborough Ridge.
We have just delivered designs in January to our clients in Oxted, Plaxtol, Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks.
We have new enquiries in Langton Green, Bidborough, Cowden and Sevenoaks.
We use 3D modelling software to realise our ideas, to demonstrate to our clients how it will look and gain their confidence to go ahead.
Here's a view of a front garden delivered and presented only last night to our clients in Tunbridge Wells, we have…

SGD AWARDS (the bafta's of the garden design world!)

I attended the Society of Garden Designers award ceremony on Friday evening at the Millenium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington, London. An awards ceremony for great garden design, now in its second year. Attended by the likes of Dan Pearson, Andy Sturgeon, Andrew Wilson amongst many other respected peers.

A lovely evening, catching up with colleagues, lecturers, suppliers, landscape contractors and making new contacts.

We did not enter the competition (maybe next year....) but thoroughly enjoyed the evening that rolled into the early hours.


A big thank you toPalmstead nurseries, Nick Coslett and Andrew Wayre  who invited me to attend for the second year. Here's a few pictures of the evening. 






 and lastly here I am with the outrageously outspoken provocateur Tim Richardson - landscape and garden critic. Who I'm sure will write an interesting but controversial account in next months SGD Journal. 


greencube's website has many new updates including a shiny new portfolio page

the lull before the storm, I chose to carry out some much needed work on our website over the christmas holidays including a shiny new portfolio page. The phones were not ringing and I've been wanting to do it for a while, always putting it off for a rainy day.....we had an incredibly busy 2013 and now looking forward to 2014.

We have an exciting garden being built in Reigate, Loughton and 3 in Sevenoaks, I'll be out in the spring and summer taking some more photos.

 Here are a few extracts from our new portfolio page including garden in Borough Green completed last year and my own garden, meadow, trial borders and kitchen garden, see full details: http://greencubed.co.uk/portfolio/portfolio.html
