English Cottage & Country Gardens

We at Floral & Hardy love traditional English Country gardens.

You're in the right hands when we design your garden as we take care over the planting schemes and the stonework used if you decide you want a patio. We can create those special 'hidden places' in the garden where you can enjoy a different view wherever you stand or sit.

Sanderstead Secret

This is the rectangular rear garden to an Edwardian terraced house in a quiet residential road in Sanderstead.

Front garden and rear garden for a 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.

The View Beyond

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

English country garden

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.  

English country garden in Keston

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 in large garden

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.

Victorian Cottage

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. 


Country garden in town

Escape to the Country

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

Small cottage garden

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.
