greencube welcomes Toby to the team and a gardener's garden completed in Sevenoaks

Toby has joined us for the summer, he's already achieved RHS level 2 and principles of horticulture and is now in his final year at Uni studying landscape architecture at University of Gloucestershire.
He's helping with surveys, sketch up, planting plans, maintenance and some planting!

We are now referred to as 'The Blonde Team!' (well one of us almost grey!:>) Here we are last week planting up phase 1 of a garden in Offham, photos of garden to follow shortly. Photo taken by client.

new garden in SE12 gets a greencube makeover

Here we have used muted clay from cuprinol external shades to paint the sheds.

Choose sentry sheds for stylish storage in your garden.


Cantilevered umbrella fitted in the ground, with tilt and turn, giving options on shade or sun!

We have also used some large boulders and pebbles mixed in various sizes.
