hello March... we have big plans for you!
Welcome to our recap of the last year from January 2016 to date.
It was a golden year,
full of light and colour
Some of the team on site this week with frozen smiles / Jan 2017
In the depths of Winter 2016 one of our teams began the build on our new studio and nursery premises on Blenheim estate
all whilst pre-approved designs began installation from Jan 2016 throughout the year, starting with a welcome return to Burford House to landscape the main body of the property.

Projects designed & installed, plus ongoing projects 2016 - please note many projects have been 'in the works' throughout 2016 and will be formally shot for the portfolio in each season this year. The finished projects will be featuring here on the blog and coming to our portfolio throughout 2017.
March 2016 - the company moved in to a portion of the barn that had been completed. It was a bit of a squeeze!
Spring! - 2016
We paid a fond and sad farewell to Far End in 2016. This was a long term project in Kingham that we installed 5 years ago and upkept until the property was sold at the end of 2016. We wish it's new owners well and hope they enjoy the modern prairie landscape for many years to come.

Welcome to our exterior design blog. It's an amazing year for autumn colour and light. It has been so mild that the leaves have been able to develop some stunning colours - some trees even performing on a spectrum we rarely get to see. In this post our focus is clearly on celebrating this season and showcasing an autumn reloaded by way of trees that stand poignantly and sculpture that stands subjectively in our landscape.

We would like the contents of this blog to speak for itself
Back in 2012 we posted a blog called Landscapes reloaded and, amongst many other artists, we explored the effect of a Kaws sculpture set against the countryside as a form of land art. As there are only two weeks left now to witness the magic of these ultra modern and urban artworks in the British countryside we felt we had to go and see them and share the sheer scale of these sculptures against this mature landscape.
Also at the YSP is the new exhibition from Not Vital, both outdoors and underground - we cant encourage you enough to go and see how stunningly clever this is. That said, there are so many amazing artworks at YSP - after all these years it was a highlight seeing a Nikki de Saint Phalle sculpture.
