Clients in L.A, Black decking and working on an 'arts and crafts' scheme

It's been another very busy week at greencube. I attended the SGD (society of garden designers) Spring Conference on Saturday, rubbing shoulders with my peers and fellow industry colleagues, a great day that focused on the use of ornamental grasses with presentations from growers, designers and plant hunters.  On sunday I completed a 14 mile walk to raise funds for Marsden Hospital - Cancer Charity - the Marsden March.

A mix of slate with stone resin frame and decking with duck egg accent colours added, a vegetable plot and 3 zones to chill out and enjoy the sunshine. 3d modelling exports: We have just tendered for a garden in Reigate that we designed late last year. A garden that has had a very large extension with open plan kitchen/family room and large windows facing the rear garden. The new terrace will have porcelain tiles running from kitchen out to the garden terrace and will be retained by a wonderful textural sandstone wall.
