Terraced Garden - Sevenoaks

Design Brief

As planting specialists we are often asked to plant up a scheme where the groundwork has already been constructed and with this garden in Sevenoaks, we brought our plant knowledge to a range of different areas, from shady, woodland space undernetah big trees, to sunny terraces which required a wealth of colour and texture to carry the display through the seasons.

We always have to bear in mind the maintenance levels which the garden will benefit from at a later date but when a client also has a passion for plants, the planting scheme can be allowed to excel in every part of the garden.

Here is how the garden looked before we began
