new garden in Sevenoaks just completed

Greencube's new garden

Ragstone walls, lots of roses, hydrangeas and perennials, big borders and a wonderful terrace encapsulated by ragstone wall and a pond that has three water spouts.

This garden has had a major transformation.


Black fences send all the plants forward and blur the boundaries.


Another arbour in this garden creating a focal point in the higher ground.



We have a client just around the corner from this garden who is about to undergo extensive works to house and garden and so we re-homed their 9 gold fish, 2 newts and 12 tadpoles into this pond. Carried in polythene bags and released into their very nice new habitat. 
some of the new planting looking good now include Salvia 'Caradonna'  Diascia 'Daydream'


 Hydrangea 'Invincible'

Keep dead heading all summer and reap the rewards. Our greencube maintenance gardener Gemma looks after this garden in Sevenoaks.


A modern and traditional palette of plants to tie in with the 'old coach house' dating back to 1836 with a 21st century spin.


Here we have mounted pots on top of old coach house brick platforms and installed statuesque obelisks.


We have also placed a copy Lutyens bench which was designed at the same time as the property was built. Sir Edwin Lutyens an architect and design…
