Thoughts and musings

Oakleigh Manor has welcomed the commencement of a large landscaping project in Iwade, Sittingbourne this week. The project encompasses a complete garden installation, including front and rear gardens, bespoke garden joinery, planting scheme and lighting scheme.
Our clients first contacted Oakleigh Manor as they were interested in having their garden designed, which has been carried out over the past few months with our Landscape Architect, Victor Grennan. The garden design process allows the client to be heavily involved from the start; from their initial brief, through to their comments and suggestions at concept stage, resulting in a detailed masterplan drawing. It is always a pleasure and honour to be involved in the building of a garden we have designed due to our very personal connection with the garden and client.
We are now 3 days into the project and so far the team have primarily been focussing on clearance of the site and groundworks, including excavating the area and installing the concrete base for the water feature.
Other elements of the project are being created in the background, away from the main site, including the two bespoke pergolas, raised planters, benches and decking in western red cedar, which Dan from Oakleigh Manor Garden Joinery is over seeing.
The whole of Oakleigh Manor are very excited about this project and cannot wait to see all the elements come together before Christmas. Please look out for our updates on this project so you can see the transformation and creation of a beautiful, well designed, functional garden.
