Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Gardens
In the 21st Century many people are rightly concerned about the impact they are having on the planet.
Floral & Hardy takes every step that is practically possible to reduce our impact on the environment. We not only use recycled materials and features, we also look into the manufacturing processes that are used to produce any new item.

Our garden at the Hampton Court show, called 'Sustainability Can be Sexy', was intended for a family with young children with an emphasis on sustainability and practicality - to incorporate renewable energy and to use recycled products wherever possible.
A large octagonal pergola with built-in benches was constructed as a pleasant outdoor ‘classroom’.
Radiating off from this new sleeper raised beds were built.
Sparkling crushed, recycled glass set in resin surrounds these forming colourful pathways.
The garden was dominated by a large swimming pool and as the children were grown up so instead our clients wanted a tranquil seating area surrounded by beautiful planting in which to entertain and relax.
This garden is on a steeply sloping, triangular plot with complicated level changes.
The roof terrace has spectacular views over interesting surrounding buildings, including the Natural History Museum, but the inhospitable, exposed, sloping space made entertaining and relaxing difficult.
Although well kept, the garden had been planted in a rather unimaginative way with boring shrubs and little seasonal colour.
Our clients wanted a traditional English country style garden with some formal touches.
The existing rectangular patio lead us to this design and we decided to square off the rather awkwardly shaped plot and divide it with a series of rectangles forming the lawn, play area, path and planting beds.
