Planting schemes from a team passionate about plants

Planting schemes from a team passionate about plants

At Slate Grey we love plants, and creating stunning planting schemes is extremely rewarding. We love returning to see plants maturing in all their glory.

Having built a good relationship with a number of the South East’s leading nurseries, we can source a large variety of quality plants for our clients.

As part of our Planting Scheme service we carry out a site assessment to check soil PH and ground conditions. We produce a report detailing any necessary soil improvement and current PH levels. With this information we can then create suitable planting list and designs ideal for the garden.

We always like to finish our planting with organic mulch, which helps keep moisture in and weeds down.

Welcome to the Slate Grey Design, Build & Maintain news page. Here you will find updates on garden design and landscaping projects, lighting and decking, plants and planting schemes, as well as any important events in the Slate Grey diary.

We are an award-winning garden design and landscaping business creating high quality bespoke gardens in and around Tunbridge Wells and throughout Kent, Sussex and Surrey.

"We used Slate Grey on a large garden design project to complement our Grade II Listed house. This involved constructing three patio areas, designing the planting and creating a lighting scheme. Richard has been delightful to work with ensured every aspect of the project was perfect."


"We have been so impressed with how the work has been carried out and it looks brilliant, even better than we imagined.
Please pass on our thanks to your guys, they are the nicest, tidiest and most considerate workers we’ve ever come across."


"I am very happy with the work, you have done an excellent and very professional job. I am looking forward to the hedging coming to life in the Spring."


"We have worked with Richard at Slate Grey on a regular basis for over 10 years while he has updated and restored many parts of our large country garden. Richard is very professional and his work is always to the highest standards."


"Slate Grey designed a contemporary, useable, family friendly garden. They understood our needs and had the vision to create what we required. Every aspect was considered and professionalism apparent throughout."


"In just 12 weeks in winter, our 'plot' was transformed from a drab space to a beautiful garden with curves, colour and lighting. Slate Grey were punctual, reliable, and worked with dedication and craftsmanship. We cannot rate them highly enough. They have done a fantastic job and we are amazed at the transformation."
