A visit to Keukenhof and nursery visit in Boskoop

What a wonderful couple of days myself and good friend and fellow Garden Designer Catherine Clancy had in Amsterdam.

Full of colour, perfection and inspiration, Keukenhof at its 'peak'. Pure Bulb perfection. I took over 600 photos on my visit which is why it has taken me so long to choose some of my favourites to share on our blog on this bank holiday Monday!

A truly inspiring, magical place visited on the 21st April 2017.

pool or hot tub

Greencube have completed this wonderful garden near West Malling, Kent.
Here we have used porcelain stone and hardwood decking. The hot tub is lowered into the deck.
I'll return to take further photos in the summer.

Gabion wall looking great in Sevenoaks

I returned to a garden that we designed over 7 years ago this week, we are doing some additional design work for the rest of the garden. Gabion wall has weathered in nicely, here we have used boulders and large pebbles of varying sizes. A great way to hold back a hillside.
