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...

Stonework terraces full with lush planting

Lush, woodland planting compliments the children's play house

Mutliple levels of stonework terraces are home to a wide range of plant species for year round colour
