the project

Supreme Winner and twice Best in Category at The Association of Professional Landscapers 2020.

Simply Green are privileged to have worked alongside Philip Nash Design and brought this beautiful landscaping project to life at the flagship Contemporary family home by Huf Haus.

Works have ranged from the “floating” terrace and feature gabion walls, to beautiful steel and stone staircases rising out of the landscape, and the landscape extending from the house to the banks of the Thames. Environmental considerations of flooding had to be taken into account in all design solutions / materials used; due to the close proximity to the River.

Block planting is bold in its simplicity: Swathes of purple and grey lavender and grasses surround the house; beautiful mature willow trees now grace the banks of the river and Blocks of Betula utilis ‘Jacquemontii’ punctuate the landscape with strong, elegant, white trunks, especially prominent in winter.

Currently the thames river-side mooring is going in and the final step is the resin-bound drive and front gates to complete this prestigious project.
