greencube gets TEN from Len

Last Tuesday I was invited along to the Wildernesse Golf Club in Seal nr Sevenoaks. We have worked with Wildernesse Golf Club since 2012 designing improvements to the rear terrace, side access and the courtyard/arrival space.

The champagne reception was a celebration and grand opening with Strictly's Len Goodman cutting the ribbon.

Here are a few images of the evening and the transformation.

We worked alongside the golf clubs committee and architect Andrew Boakes Associates, Birkby Construction and Creative Landscapes. Greencube designed the landscapes, planting design and planting.

Len was heckled with a 'SEVEN' call out from the crowd and he then responded pointing out the transformation, the wonderful space and awarded the face lift at Wildernesse Golf Club with a TEN.

the transformation is incredible lifting a very sad post war building into the 21st century with a new veneer…

greencube proudly launches new 2016 responsive website

we have finally uploaded our new, sleek website containing 'responsive website design', a huge thank you to my husband Mike who gave up many weekend hours to help me find the right layout and coding to make it all happen.

responsive website design helps our 'end users' view our website on an iPhone, blackberry, iPad, netbook, kindle, mac, windows pc or tv -  responding to the users behaviour and environment based on the screen size, platform and its orientation. We hope you like it.

we have used a template with flexible grids and layouts to make this happen and embedded our weekly blog to keep it fresh and upto date

there are many new gardens featured on our new website and some exciting projects near to completion that we will upload shortly.

I have chosen the images to illustrate boldness in colour, imaginative material use and our passion that hopefully shines through every project we touch......

cor-ten styled garden for a victorian foundry conversion

context is so important and as much as we (at greencube) love designing the gardens for modern new homes with zero thresholds, minimal and contemporary design we also love to diversify.

Here we have designed a garden for a victorian foundry in Walsingham in North Norfolk converted into holiday cottages in the last decade. The foundry originally founded in 1809, making iron castings for farming industry, war casualties ended the male line and so in 1918 it was sold to the Wright family and they continued to trade until 1932, the depression caused its closure. In 1938 it was purchased by the Barnhams who made agricultural implements, pumps, fireballs, backplates, stokers, grates and ornamental fire baskets............

and so we have paid homage to the cottage and its history

and implemented lots of wonderful weathering steel, someone said 'its a bit rusty' we hope you like it, its a rich and developing patina that seems to get warmer and richer in colour on a weekly basis.
