Tulips, obelisks and arbours

We have just completed a new garden in Sevenoaks - a beautiful old coach house built originally in 1836, it now has a wonderful front garden with obelisks, old style coach house brick platforms with oversized pots bursting at the seems with daffodils and tulips. Slate paving and an arbour. A tasteful mix of old and new linking back to its heritage then jumping forward to the 21st century.

Garden designed, planted and project managed by greencube, hardscape by Langdale Landscapes.

Gemma now maintains this garden monthly.

The resin bound drive is just about to be applied the last of the hard landscaping jobs. I will return to take further photos during the spring and summer to hopefully capture this wonderful garden through the seasons.













spring has sprung...

Busy busy as always. Tulips photographed in our Hadlow garden this week. It was a bit hot and a bit bright but these stunning lily flowering tulips are all open with great colour.  They sit within a courtyard enclosure within a much larger garden, surrounded by white rendered walls. We were a little surprised by the 25 degree heat this week, Gemma had her shorts on. I have been emailing our clients to remind them to keep watering.

In my own garden I potted up a large grey stone pot with a mix of bulbs. 



Now looking glorious, we use this double orange tulip quite a bit. Gemma has been reaping the rewards of her hard work this week, maintaining gardens in Tunbridge Wells, New Barn, Hadlow and Langton Green all of which have many tulips now in flower, we purchased 9,400 bulbs last autumn.



Meanwhile my veg patch is doing well, here are my new salad leaves just started.

Amelanchier lemarkii is just in flower, we use this small tree as a specimen to create height but not shade around a terrace.…
