Popped back to this #sevenoaks garden we planted last December and was delighted to see heaps of colour! We often need to disguise or soften kids play frames or trampolines - here we planted a neat beech hedge and then used the client’s bench and some planting to take the focus. It works! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #godstone #westerham @mlynchlandscapes ...

It’s World Bee Day today so here’s a pic taken earlier this week - this bee found us almost as soon as we planted this verge. Amazing! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #darenth #sevenoaksmums #worldbeeday #worldbeeday2022 ...

Popped back to check on the planting in this #oxted garden we completed in February. This was a damp, shady (muddy) bank leading to a lovely new summer house, and quite frankly it was letting the side down! We designed the steps (thank you @fraserlandscapesltd for an expert build) and the planting which is already establishing beautifully. Hidden fire pit area top left too! #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #godstone #sevenoaksmums ...

Day 2 of planting complete - the Nepeta stole the show today!! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #dartford #darenth #sevenoaksmums ...

Swathes of colourful perennials and grasses, with a ‘wildflower’ brief from the client. Day 1 today - planting the structure plants. Some gorgeous Stipa gigantea run through the middle of the bank, then swathes of perennials and grasses, a few shrubs and some self-seeders too. There will be a real hit of colour this summer - then it will be lovely to see this develop and mature. A wildflower meadow is actually a lot harder to create than simply chucking some seeds around. This is the more achievable alternative! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #dartford #darenth ...

Just love this little composition we planted last year at the base of this sunny wall. Wisteria is getting established - meanwhile the Libertia is in flower, Euphorbia just going over, Nepeta just beginning. Perovskia and Sedum a bit later on. Contrasting shapes and foliage. Sometimes the non-formal areas of the garden are the most charming #godstone #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #westerham #sevenoaksmums ...

Spotted on a dog walk today - this Box (Buxus) hedge in #limpsfield high street is absolutely covered in box moth caterpillars. Such a shame to lose an established hedge. We haven’t planted any Box for a couple of years now - balls tend to be Pittosporum Golf Ball and hedges might be Lonicera nitida or perhaps Euonymus japonicus. Do be vigilant if you have Box in your garden #oxted #limpsfieldchart ...

No Mow May - let’s do this! I’m a firm believer that lawns exist to show off the planting. Oh and to play and relax on of course. As Monty Don says ‘lawns just need to be green’ - with neat edges. Stripes are unnecessary. And lawns definitely don’t need to be endlessly sprayed with chemicals - we all need to do our bit for the bees and other pollinators. So this May I’m going to try not mowing this lawn and see what happens. Why not give it a go?! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

This little Cercis is clearly very happy in a pot, the bare stems are covered in pink flowers which have lasted for weeks. This is the first glimpse of the garden that you see as you enter the house, so pots get moved around and positioned in this spot when looking good. Note also the cushions are out which means it will definitely rain soon! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Planting plan for next weeks project in Icehouse Wood #oxted . When you commission us to design your planting we produce a detailed plant-by-plant plan, and lots of pics (which are a bit more helpful than a list of Latin plant names!) We choose plants which are suitable for the soil and the light so that they have the best chance of success. We also use our expertise to ensure your garden looks good all year round using interesting evergreens and pops of colour. #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Mood board - work in progress for a new commercial project which we will design and plant. Naturalistic planting - swathes of ‘wilder’ perennials and grasses, perfect for the poor soil and full sun. Should provide a wonderful display this summer and then begin to evolve as the self seeders do their thing. Super exciting! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Pretty tulip combo - Queen of the Night and Spring Green - providing some lovely pops of colour as the garden begins to get going. Bulbs in pots are easy to do, stash them out of sight (keep the squirrels off with wire) and then bring out when they’re looking fab! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Popped back to check on this Neb Lane #oxted garden we planted in February and really pleased to see how well the plants are establishing. Cherry trees in full bloom (Prunus amanagowa) are bringing some height to balance out the mature trees #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

No pressure guys but there are no spare slabs so don’t mess it up! Irrigation channels being expertly installed in this #oxted garden by @fraserlandscapesltd just in time to water the new plants in this warm weather #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Working on a design for this #oxted garden - clearly this magnificent Magnolia will be staying! #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

These 2 olive trees will provide a gentle partition between the family garden and the home office. The planters are a recent discovery, picking up the soft greys and greens of the foliage and the lovely old stone #godstone #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

A perfect example of why early spring flowers are so important. This little fella sat on this Daphne flower for a good hour today! #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #sevenoaksmums ...

A front driveway garden in #oxted we completed last week. Already the plants are off to a great start, this ornamental cherry tree will be full of spring blossom soon #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #sevenoaksmums @fraserlandscapesltd ...

Sorting the soil and then re-planting this sunny garden in Quarry Road #oxted today. The builders had planted into heavy clay (and rubble) when the house build was complete, and the poor plants had struggled. Looking much healthier now, plenty of pretty evergreens and pops of colour #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #sevenoaksmums ...

Phew - it works! That moment when you switch on the irrigation and wait for the drips. We fit irrigation in most of our planting jobs - it ensures the plants get off to a great start and means clients can spend less time watering their gardens and more time enjoying them. (Drip lines are covered with a woodchip mulch so are not visible) #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

The sun came out today and lit up the Acers, swathes of Cornus and multi-stem Silver Birch we have been busily planting in this #oxted garden. Hard to capture on a phone camera but they were absolutely glowing! #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Just finished planting and irrigating this Winter border in #limpsfield. The green Cornus give instant presence, and the white Birch trees look stunning against the dark green hedge. Now is the perfect time to plan your planting projects so please get in touch if you are thinking of refreshing your garden next Spring #oxted #oxtedsurrey #sevenoaks #sevenoaksmums #godstone #limpsfieldchart ...

Love the berries on this Callicarpa bod. Profusion - spotted in a garden we planted in Spring. Clearly loving life and lighting up this shady corner with these amazing berries. We try really hard to ensure all of the gardens we design have some unique ‘wow’ moments through the year #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #sevenoaks #woldingham ...

I first saw Nerines in Stinson Beach, California and I wondered what these ‘pink agapanthus’ were?! Finally a handful have flowered in my garden - in a pot against a sunny, west facing wall. A little reminder of a very special place #stinsonbeach #limpsfield #oxted #limpsfieldchart ...

Pennisetum Hameln - you just have to run your fingers through the fluffy seed heads. We tend to use this in mixed planting schemes in a sunny, sheltered spot - but here at @wakehurst_kew they are planted en masse and look wonderful #oxted #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

Setting out this #limpsfield project today. There’s something lovely about a bed which can be viewed from all sides - but simply putting the taller plants at the back doesn’t work! Here we will have some height and balance from a few equally spaced, taller grasses, and then groups of colourful perennials woven through the bed. Agapanthus, Verbena bonariensis, Helenium, Astrantia, Sanguisorba,, Euphorbia, Libertia and Alchemilla mollis. It will certainly bring the wow factor to this established garden #oxted #limpsfieldchart ...

We designed this terrace for a gently sloping, south facing garden in #oxted and it’s the perfect spot to unwind and catch the last of the evening light. @fraserlandscapesltd #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

The existing patio in this #oxted garden was shady and narrow, not to mention the wobbly steps up to the garden! We have created a great new space for the family to relax plus a lovely cooking and dining area, all softened by planting. The corten steel water feature is just beginning to get its colour, complementing beautifully the lovely brickwork (thank you @fraserlandscapesltd ) and the Carex test. Prairie Fire (spiky evergreen grass). More pics to follow as the planting matures. #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...

It’s all about the PREP! Assessing the light and soil, marking out, turf cutting lifting and disposal, rotavating, pulling out stones, digging over, raking, adding compost, and setting up irrigation. We are planning a hot border here to bring some drama and colour to this lovely #limpsfield garden, but first we must prepare the ground so that the plants we select will thrive. Now is a great time to plant as roots can establish while the ground is still fairly warm and then things can really get going next Spring #oxted #limpsfieldchart ...

Lovely to visit this #oxted garden we designed and planted in May looking so full and established. This long border is still looking great in mid October! #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart #godstone #sevenoaks @fraserlandscapesltd ...

Today we finished the planting of this lovely garden in Gresham Road #oxted and the muddy planting plan tells the story of the weather we have endured! Turf is next, and then we will post some amazing Before and After pics #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart @fraserlandscapesltd ...

Woodland project in #oxted is filling out nicely. This white Dicentra can be tricky to establish but is clearly loving the damp partial shade conditions. Worth trying as it flowers for months on end #limpsfield #limpsfieldchart ...
