Colourful Gardens


The clever and innovative use of colour in a garden can transform a normal garden into a stunning oasis.

Colourful planting

Plants and flowers are an ideal way to inject some brightness into your garden.  Choosing one or two colours gives a modern contemporary look or you could use Gertrude Jekyll’s style of planting to create a cottage garden effect.

Varied and colourful planting is not only aesthetically pleasing but attracts wildlife too, which is beneficial to conservation and the environment.


Using paint

The clever use of paint in a garden can add interest to any outdoor space.   Painting a dull wall in a bright colour creates a quirky feature, whilst using a pale neutral colour gives the illusion of space.

The use of paint does not solely provide a visual element but can be used to extend the life of timber and improve the appearance of tired masonry.


Colourful joinery

Incorporating bright and colourful garden joinery into a scheme is a really useful way to incorporate colour into a garden.  They can either match existing shades or create a feature by using contrasting tones.  Whether you are looking at trellis, planters or a rose arch to give a stunning focal point, we have something for all tastes.

Here in our Essex workshop our craftsmen manufacture quality bespoke garden joinery to your requirements.  All our products can be painted in one of our beautiful colours from our own carefully selected palette, or you can replicate your existing scheme using our colour matching service.  The paint system we use is extremely durable, made to withstand the elements, providing years of pleasure.
