Newly planted pine trees at Rock last year are thriving.

an evergreeen hedge of  Eleagnus.

Sun Loving Plants and Grasses, Rock

Borders planted last year for a driveway and garden in Rock have now filled out and are looking great. 
Full of lavenders, osteospurmums, rock roses, thyme, and grasses, giving the borders movement and light..

St Kew Highway Gardens Completed

The planting for both the front and back gardens at St Kew Highway are now completed.  For the front garden and driveway the client wanted a contemporary look with curving lines and a statement lawn.  The driveway had to be wider and more funtional, with hedging and some soft, but colourful planting. 

 We also found hidden in the undergrowth some old, but funky retro pots which we replanted. 
 Compare the end result with original front garden below.

You can see the transformation of the back garden below.  Wrap around paving allows the client can follow the sun during the day.  Climbing roses, clematis and wisteria will clothe the timber frame in time.  The planting includes many plants with stem interest and beautiful foliage to provide all year round interest and colour.  A new everygreen hedge replaces the old collapsed Cornish hedge with overgrown shrubs, and this will soon hide the boundary fence.  The lawn provides a soft and green centre to the garden, somewhere for the kids to play.

St Kew Highway Garden Project

The first design project of the year is at St Kew Highway.  It has been a complete transformation with the old neglected garden being cleared right out and starting from scratch with the new design.  The rain in Feb delayed and hampered progress but with the recent dry spell planting could go ahead and is now well underway.

Welcome to my blog.

My latest design projects are currently being built in St Kew and should be ready by the end of March.  Check my new website for updates.  The website should be up and running in the next couple of weeks.
