We teamed up with award-winning Garden Designer Sean Murray to transform the grounds of a home in Northumberland.

The Challenge 

Sean was challenged with a redesign of an entire 2.5-acre garden that would also need to incorporate several existing mature trees and Feng Shui recommendations. He enlisted Johnsons to supply the plants.

The solution 

Sean, the winner of the BBC RHS Great Chelsea Garden Challenge, redesigned the entire garden, with the grounds now incorporating a rose garden, formal front garden, a Zen courtyard, pondside planting, island beds and a formal jewel garden, in addition to an orchard, tennis court with pavilion, a woodland garden and a kitchen garden complete with a reclaimed greenhouse.

Johnsons cash & carry division was asked to supply mature trees, hedges and winter flowering shrubs that offered year-round interest through leaves, stems, bark, fruits and flowers.


The Result 

Our supply has transformed the grounds of this stunning property that will be enjoyed by the owners and garden visitors as part of the National Garden Scheme for many years to come.

Garden Designer, Sean Murray said: “I was genuinely thrilled to be given complete creative control over such a large garden. It has been a pleasure to work with the owners to create what I hope is the garden of their dreams. Johnsons plants were all top-notch quality and their team were extremely professional and were keen to go the extra mile.
