Sculpture in the garden, greencube designs a sculptural ball garden

I'm still out taking photos of all the gardens that have been constructed in the last year and last night I visited our clients in Borough Green, Kent to photograph this garden.

We designed the terracing around this very beautiful home and picked up on the existing buff coloured stone detailing that formed the sills and frames around the doors and windows. A complimentary colour  of yellow granite was finally chosen (Yellow Granite paving from CED) and a sculptural border of yellow granite balls (from Rock Unique) underplanted with Ilex crenata balls and Libertia grandiflora. Oak benches and oak arches have also been included and some division of zones created by deck laid flush with granite. This scheme fuses well with the house and setting.


I will return in August to take further photos when the garden furniture is in place and hopefully get some night shots, lighting not yet fully completed at time of visit.

Practical storage solutions in our gardens in Tunbridge Wells and Folkestone

Storage in a garden is a common requirement but often forgotten or positioned too far away for practical use.

Exciting Garden to be built in Collier Street, Kent

I have just completed a design for a lovely couple moving into a refurbished cottage in Collier Street. I have teamed up with Nik at Langdale Landscapes who will be completing the construction. This design includes large sculptural steel balls, a reflective pool, a stainless steel water wall, a cool pod (garden room) at the end of the garden, a log wall, some wonderful built in seating with storage and a very contemporary layout and design. Looking forward to working with Nik on this one.
