Rising sun backlighting the miscanthus. We’ve had a smattering of snow overnight. It actually feels a little like winter... finally 🙄😜 #miscanthus #ornamentalgrass #dof #depthoffield #bokeh
Y is for yew. The iconic clipped yews of Packwood House. According to legend the yew trees at Packwood represent ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ and are over 350 years old. Packwood is now looked after by the National Trust who have started a phased rejuvenation programme to ensure the yews’ future. #yew #garden #packwood #nationaltrust #topiary
Focus⠀ ⠀ What do we see?⠀ What are we aware of?⠀ They’re not quite the same thing.⠀ ⠀ Jason’s photographs are so powerful in focussing in on certain vignettes and conveying the wider energy of the place. ⠀ ⠀ When we visit a landscape our focus varies each time. We may not be aware of the energy we respond to but we’ll take away the feeling it creates.⠀ ⠀ As a designer we have to zoom out to zoom in, understand the essence of a place and convey it through myriad little details. ⠀ The same applies to ourselves. If you are a designer, a creative or something else, perhaps it was inevitable you would be that, but what kind of a designer/creative/other brilliant thing? What little details make up the whole?⠀ ⠀ Today is more of a question than an answer, as befits the end of a year. ⠀ ⠀ My question is: taking what I have learnt this year into next year, what am I going to focus on? ⠀ ⠀ I’d love to know yours.⠀ ⠀ #twelvedays #designingredients Photo of euphorbia by jasoningram featured in #gardendesignjournal #focus #newyear #englishcountrygarden #houseandgarden #wintergarden #homesandgardens #jan #contemporarydesign #landscapedesigner #architecturefocus #gardensillustrated #jj_gardens #abundance #designinthedetail #structure #12daysofdesign #marianboswalllandscapes #gardendesignideas #gardeninspo
Beautiful hellebore in flower in our garden, so lovely to see spring on its way.

A sneak peak! We’re working behind the scenes to deliver a new responsive and more up to date website for our new and existing customers! It’s very exciting!! I can’t wait but have to be patient as it’s time consuming but we are hoping for a launch in a couple of weeks! #sneakpeak #gardendesign #gardendesigner #gardendesignwebsite #newwebsite #landscapedesign #garden_explorers #total_gardens #garden_styles #jj_gardens #horticulture #landscapedesigner #gardendesignerkenilworth
Another design completed for a customer in Kenilworth. The garden is a strange shape, a small rear garden and larger side garden. The side garden currently has a disused pond and is the sunniest. Now the whole family can enjoy the space with a seating area for adults and the children have grass to play on which was an important part of the brief. The planting plan is the next exciting phase for us. #garden #gardendesign #gardendesigner #landscapedesign #landscapedesigner #patio #seatingarea #adultspace #lawn #plantingplan #gardening_feature #garden_styles #garden_explorers #total_gardens #jj_gardens #horticulture #kenilworth #kenilworthgardendesigner
Day 12 - time... Sun dial at Kiftsgate Court Gardens. #sundial #time #garden #dof #depthoffield #kiftsgate
Aunque los dias son frios es lujo salir al jardín en Mallorca
Gorgeous ornamental grass wafting in the breeze. #miscanthus #ornamentalgrass #dof #depthoffield
Have really enjoyed this project, a wheel chair friendly garden. It was a tight brief keeping their existing decking whilst ensuring wheel chair access throughout the garden with no slopes. One section we have created a veggie growing area, there are two large ornamental borders with low maintenance scented shrubs to stimulate other senses. A few seating areas have also been included around the garden to maximise interest and enjoyment for all the family. The construction should begin next month then planting soon after! Can’t wait 😀 #excitingproject #gardendesign #gardendesigners #landscapedesign #horticulture #accessiblegarden #wheelchair #wheelchairaccessible #gardening #landscaping #gardenconstruction #garden_styles #garden_explorers #jj_gardens #all_gardens #total_gardens #englishgarden #vectorworks

Jardins Marco Polo, Paris 6 . The first critique of this fountain read: "This thin, unhealthy women, with their wasted flanks, their elongated, furrowed thighs, are twisting around in a bizarre circle without any grace....One has to ask by what aberration of spirit, eye and hand one could compose such a group of wild, vulgar and wrinkled dancers." #soparisian . . . . . . . . . . . . . #tv_architectural #tv_garden #garden #jj_gardens #gardenlove #landscapearchitecture #fountain #jj_delightfully_deteriorating #patina #jardins #parisjetaime #citykillerz #cityoflights #igersparis #paris_maville #passionpassport #maximal #arteverywhere #publicart #symmetrykillers #symmetricalmonsters

The Arium is where Leeds City Council grow all the trees, plants & flowers for the parks & greenspaces of the city. It’s the largest council horticultural nursery in the country, capable of growing 3 million plants a year and over 500 different species. It’s also automated and has machinery that can pot 10,000 seedlings an hour. Covering 19,000m2, it’s an architectural masterpiece, rivalling the huge Victorian glasshouses of yesteryear. Go visit, it’s awesome! 🌱 #thearium #leeds . . . . . #tv_pointofview #gardening #jj_gardens #gardensofinstagram #leedswelcome #discoverleeds #ig_britain #igbritishisles #independentleeds #horticulture #architecture

Trying to get into the festive spirit...Snowberries also doing their best to invoke the winter mood. No chance of snow in Kenilworth just yet so snowberries will have to do... building a snowman might be a challenge... 🤔 ⛄️ #white #snowberry #symphoricarpos
This is my final look into Chanticleer for this season. I absolutely plan to go back when the garden opens in March!
Is this the end or just the beginning?!?
An interesting concept at The Design Museum called 100 mile city which is said to be similar to Barcelonetta but on the outskirts of london to cope housing needs. Some of it to be built on green belt land which isn’t a great idea really! The concept is good though with train lines above the roads for good space utilisation. Hope they can build in plenty of green spaces!! #designmuseum #housingdesign #100milecitylondon #100milecity #greenspaces #gardens #loves_garden #garden_explorers #garden_styles #jj_gardens #greenbelt #greenbeltland #barcelonetta
It has been a huge privilege to spend two days at the National Trust London and South East conference and to give two workshops on Innovation, Creativity and Guardianship. ⠀ ⠀ What a superb group of Head Gardeners and Managers working to make the National Trust Gardens the best they can be.⠀ ⠀ Like this seed head every National Trust house and garden is so individual and precious in its own way, and they spread knowledge and indeed happiness to all of us that get to use them.⠀ ⠀ I came away having learnt as well as taught, and been inspired as well as sown some seeds of inspiration.⠀ ⠀ #sowingseeds #guardianship #serendipity #nationaltrust #landscapedesigners #headgardeners #heritagegardens #marianboswalllandscapes #gardendesign #momentsofmine #autumnwatch #helix #fibonaccispiral #jj_naturelovers #jj_gardens #patternsinnature #softaesthetic #gentle #mycreativelife #lovemyjob #mindgames #groundingenergy ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
"S" is for...
Hazards of getting up in the dark:⠀ ⠀ 1) putting your makeup on like a clown ⠀ 2) putting garam masala on your porridge instead of cinnamon⠀ ⠀ I’m heading to London to present a landscape design concept for a beautiful estate with new Frances Terry paragraph 55 house today. So I’m hoping only (2) applies... and⠀ ⠀ 3) The brilliant thing about when you get up in the dark is that the day can look like this in your mind! ⠀ ⠀ Have a fabulous day!⠀ ⠀ And a tasty breakfast..⠀ ⠀ #marianboswalllandscapes #smallmomentsofcalm #bestbreakfast #mycreativelife #paragraph55 #landscapedesigners #seedheads #autumngrasses #autumncolour #jj_gardens
I’ve been writing about walls and other boundaries for my regular feature in the next issue of Listed Heritage magazine. ⠀ ⠀ This is one of my favourites that we designed for a pair of new walled gardens in Sussex. The design is based on a lovely Lutyens detail using crease tiles which are curved roofing tiles designed to keep water off the brickwork below. ⠀ ⠀ Under it a pair of roof tiles direct the flow of rain water off the brickwork and provide a pretty flair and shadow line below. ⠀ ⠀ All the bricks and tiles were reclaimed from a building that was being taken down nearby so they fit perfectly with the local vernacular. ⠀ ⠀ I hand choose all details like this and the first 40,000 bricks I chose were so lovely they were pinched for the house! Lucky I found some more.⠀ ⠀ To finish the look we designed the plant supports and had them made by a local blacksmith. ⠀ ⠀ The pleached trees and columns beyond the wall are to filter the wind and frame the view. They are from Hillier’s, so field grown in the UK.⠀ ⠀ The Sussex landscape beyond is worth gazing at! In a rare break are the co-creators and the guardian of the garden. Lovely Ketch the head gardener and Nathan Donovan who worked for Frogheath then.⠀ ⠀ The garden won the Sussex Heritage Trust Award for Landscape, but most importantly will be a great legacy for this special spot for many years to come.⠀ ⠀ #walldesign #wallporn #walls #walllove #detaildesign #hardscape #mycreativelife #historicgarden #guardians #sussexheritagetrust #heritagestyle #listedproperty #heritagegarden #marianboswalllandscapes #plantingdesign #pleachedtrees #jj_gardens #gardendesign #thenaturefix
Model of a new style of back to back houses updated for modern living. This was part of the exhibition at the Design Museum which was really interesting. This style of house over looks a tree lined square and all have their own private terrace but no green space of their own. Space is a premium these days but surely having some soil of your own to make a garden/green area is a basic need/requirement? So often housing developers either bury rubbish and cover with a thin layer of topsoil and call it a garden or they create a space completely overlooked so people won’t want to go out and engage with nature. Finally some people are starting to realise how important horticulture is for human survival but also mental health.....housing developers need to take this into account! #thedesignmuseum #backtobackhouses #housingsolutions #trees #greenspcaces #horticulture #gardens #loves_garden #garden_styles #garden_explorers #jj_gardens #greenspace

Blending in beautifully⠀ ⠀ Faking it till she makes it to be part of the cool set at the end of season party? Or staying true to her inner beauty and just shining on through the fashions of colour and season?⠀ ⠀ This Olivia Newton John of roses has been blooming in my garden since May. .⠀ ⠀ It’s a fair wee while since I queued around the block with my mother to see Grease at our village cinema..but I still clearly remember feeling so perturbed as a pre-teen when Sandy changed her ‘vibe’. She so didn’t need to! ⠀ ⠀ And here’s the proof, in a rose, doing her thing amongst the loud proud autumn crowd and doing it beautifully.⠀ ⠀ #autumn #rose #grease #innerbeauty #olivianewtonjohn #truth #truetoyourself #lateseason #mygardennow #mygardenvibe #jj_seasons #jj_gardens #gardendesign #plantingdesign #marianboswalllandscapes #wonder #gratitude #beauthenticallyyou

O is for orange Orange seeds of iris foetidissima. Apparently these plants are often grown for the seeds which don’t usually fall. Cut the whole stem and use them in a floral display. They last for ages... who knew? 😜🤓 #orange #seeds #irisfoetidissima #iris
