Welcome to the first post of 2013. Happy New Year. Now that the festivities have ended and the greyness of January descends we are going to be focusing on colour here.
All month we hope to lift your spirits by drawing inspiration from the wider landscapes around the globe, and by discussing methods of colour blocking in your garden.
Before you know it Spring will be emerging and until then we hope to help you to look forward to the possibilities for your garden in 2013. We will be looking at winter gardens
and how we design all of our projects to look good in these bleak months (and that includes the importance of the absence of colour for a period of time), but until it snows in the UK and settles, we are all about the colour here for the beginnings of 2013.
We are just bursting with ideas.
And no, we don’t mean Willy Wonka inspired chocolate lakes or ponds
but we do like to be influenced by naturally occurring landscapes alongside illustrious artists offering the extraordinary and the sublime.

So with that said what will 2013 spell for us and our clients?
All 2012 projects come in to their own for our clients with many surprises in store. All will be monitored and photographed Winter, Spring and onwards through the seasons this year and be shared to the online portfolio.
We continue to build and plant a diverse range of confirmed projects – no two gardens or landscapes are ever the same – and this year’s HC Gardens designs are testament to that.
Alongside these projects we are designing and building one of the main show gardens at the Blenheim Palace Flower Show in June. Overall we just continue to look forward to the untold twists and turns and the challenges that another year will inevitably bring. So here’s to a bright, outwards outlook for gardens in 2013.
