“Set within 120 acres of beautiful Kent countryside Lullingstone Castle is one of England’s oldest family estates dating as far back as The Domesday Book.
In the grounds within a two acre walled garden is set the UK’s first ever “World Garden of Plants”. The Plants collected from all corners of the world have each been planted within a bed representing their area of origin. Each bed is surrounded by a rock edging.
For it’s coastline each geographical area of planting is surrounded by a different rock. When working with the designers of this garden we searched for colours and shapes that felt appropriate for and made some connection with the area concerned.
Between the planting where visitors walk the areas are covered with CEDEC Silver footpath gravel an economic free-draining and effective material that compliments all the rocks and the planting.”
