three completed greencube gardens visited last week all looking great...

1st Garden In Leigh, Kent

I visited our clients in Leigh, Kent last week and their garden is looking really good. This was completed last year and has been maturing nicely.

We love hydrangeas and use them for mid to late summer flower, here the Hydrangea paniculata 'Vanille Fraise' are looking amazing, they remind me of a mr whippy ice-cream.

Mixed with Heuchera and Pennisetum. 
Now some of our clients think that Hydrangeas are an old fashion plant that they saw in their gran's garden, but here planted in bold swathes interplanted with grass makes for a modern border.




Here we designed vertical green oak timbers interplanted with Miscanthus and Persicaria.
But I feel the most eye catching plant in this garden in July is the Helenium planted in bold swathes down through a bank with oak platforms.

So here's what it was looking like last week when I visited, now that the stone has arrived and the garden is almost finished.

Its been tough for our clients watering in such a dry spring and warm summer, plants need a huge amount of water in their first year especially large shrubs and trees. We cannot emphasise enough
how much to water in year 1 during spring and summer, keep up the good work....

We have used gabions filled with ragstone to retain a level change to boundary.
