Front and rear gardens to this large house in Chislehurst

Country Living

Our clients had renovated this detached property in Chislehurst, Kent to a very high standard and they wanted to replicate the same quality of finish to the outside spaces. 

Long thin garden in Rochester

Great Expectations

This is a beautiful period house in Rochester, Kent near to both the castle and cathedral, with views over the River Medway, and our clients wanted the garden to reflect that, both in style and quality.

Rear garden that overlooks Hayes Common

The View Beyond

This was a recently refurbished, modern bungalow with roof extension in Hayes Village, Kent with lovely views over the Common.

Natural water course with waterfall

Country Garden with Natural Water Course

The whole plot was surrounded by large trees and hedging and there was little colour in the garden. Our clients wanted to create a traditional country-style garden with lots of colour and traditional features. They are keen gardeners and also wanted a space for growing vegetables and fruit.  

Garden for a new build house

Garden for a New House

This garden was the small, shady, north-facing garden to a relatively new build house on a private estate. 

Modern and traditional garden

Modern & Traditional Meet

These front & rear gardens lie on the Greenwich / Blackheath border, on a steeply sloping, triangular plot with complicated level changes.

Our client is a keen gardener who wanted a complete overhaul of her garden space. She wanted something pretty and private that she could relax in and develop over time. 

Cottage garden style for this large house in Keston Park

From Russia with Love

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.

oak arbour with natural patio

From Harbour to Arbour

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.



Country garden

Escape to the Country

The existing plot sloped up away from the house and was rather tired in appearance. The original deck at the rear was a particular eyesore.

Front garden to a listed house in Shoreham

Village Gem

These are the gardens surrounding a modern detached property in the pretty village of Shoreham in Kent that is built in the grounds of a large period house.


Beautiful, traditional garden design    

Everyone has a view of the quintessential English cottage garden - unruly tumble of plants filling every available space, plants growing over the tops of pergolas, climbers running up drainpipes. Classic garden design can never be underestimated!   

Our long experience of traditional country and cottage garden designs have led us to understand that every single one is different and every single one reflects the house, the space and the personalities of the people who live there.
