Bond-themed prize garden


James Bond creator Ian Fleming has been the inspiratio­n for an award-winning garden design which has landed a small landscapin­g firm pride of place at the country’s top gardening show. Earthstone Landscapes, which is based in Ash, has earned the coveted first place in the prestigiou­s BBC Gardeners’ World Live exhibition in August, where it will create the garden. The accolade comes on top of another prestigiou­s award - this time for garden maintenanc­e - which it received from the Associatio­n of Profession­al Landscaper­s.

The business is run by partners Alison Coxhead and Ian Day, who manage a 10-strong team from the site in Hoaden Lane.

“For a relatively small business like ours, it’s quite an achievemen­t,” said Ian. Alison’s winning design used cues and themes from Bond films, like giant dice for seating.
