Tweet We have been a little bit quiet over here on the ecospot over the last week or so. There are many reasons for this – for one, we were having a bit of a major design overhaul (and we hope you like the new look!) and as well as having a digital redesign we […]

wednesday walls – a cor-ten steel fence…

Tweet Ok. We are bending the rules just a touch today with this fantastic image. Not strictly a wall, today’s post is all about a fence.

It is beautifully scented, has great all year round structure, is great for bees, is edible and is generally very hardy. What’s not to like really. Plus, you can get it in […]

Tweet Today, as it is of course, the week of the Chelsea Flower Show, we are looking at a nice landscape detail we spotted on Pinterest… We are big fans of creating lines in the landscapes that we design, both in the detailing and the layout, so we thought that this particular piece of detailing […]
