A Dog’s Life Garden designed by Paul Hervey-Brookes for The Dogs Trust

As Dogs Trust celebrates its 125th anniversary, this garden marks the charity’s commitment to finding new, loving owners for thousands of homeless dogs every year.

PMS: Outside Inside Garden for NAPS designed by Emma Bannister @pmsgarden

The garden is inspired by the stories of those who suffer from severe premenstrual syndrome. The common native planting on the outside contrasts with the inaccessible space and distorted planting inside.

World Vision Garden designed by John Warland

The World Vision Garden symbolises journeys of life. Inspired by the lives of children around the world, the floating waves of turf each represent an individual life.

A breath of Fresh Air design by Rae Wilkinson for The Abbeyfield Society

Breathing new life into the concept of a sensory garden and celebrating 60 years of The Abbeyfield Society, the design has created a calming space for older people and specifically those living with dementia.

A Summer Retreat designed by Laura Arison and Amanda Waring for CCLA

Inspired by the ethos of the Arts and Crafts Movement, the garden embraces the values of simplicity, elegance, style and craftsmanship. It is designed to be either a separate garden room adjoined to a larger space or an entity on its own.

The Lavender Garden designed by Paula Napper, Sarah Warren and Donna King

The design is inspired by the scent, colour and romance of lavenders grown at a dairy farm on the rolling hills of the South Downs National Park.

Instant Hedge makes a difference

Lisa Cox, is an award-winning SGD designer who transforms gardens into inspiring spaces. Lisa created a beautiful family garden in Oxshott, Surrey and chose our Elveden Instant Hedge to complement her beautiful design creating a soft boundary in laurel on a fence line.  Lisa created a blog when first implementing the project with an update a year later.

Soft green touch on a new development

The new development of individually styled period houses was softened into the environment by the judicious installation of evergreen Elveden Instant Hedge.

Common Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus ‘Rotundifloia’) was chosen for its soft, pale green, fresh look and its even, vigorous growth that provides a year round hedge which reliably screens any new build project. Common Yew (Taxus baccata) was used on the front boundary to add a touch of classic evergreen maturity and sense of time to the development.

Elveden Instant Hedge wins new developer client

Practicality Brown were chosen to supply Elveden Instant Hedge for a high quality new home development in Winchester, Hampshire.

The project required:

  • A total of 180m of hedge
  • 136m Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus)
  • 30m of Common Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) and
  • 14m Privet (Ligustrum ovalifolium).

Once again, the introduction of Elveden Instant Hedge truly added immediate impact and maturity to this brand new development.

Instant Box Hedge with Specimen Topiary Plants

Award-winning Garden Designer, Arne Maynard designed a formal garden for a manor house in Berkshire.

We supplied and planted Elveden Instant Hedge, Box hedge and specimen topiary to create an instant traditional garden in phase one of the garden design.

Beech Instant Hedge providing maturity on a new development

A new build development in Gloucestershire gained immediate maturity by the installation of Elveden Instant Hedge; we supplied and installed 36 metres Beech Instant Hedge for a construction company at Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Compared to a traditional size hedge transplants, our unique Elveden Instant Hedge products provides immediate maturity.  Beech is good hedge for year round seasonally variable interest; it holds onto its bronze autumnal leaves well throughout winter, thereby providing adequate winter screening, despite being deciduous, in the spring the leaves emerge a bright glossy green.  It is a very traditional English hedge and remains one of our best sellers.
