Rosewood has been sharing beautiful art for garden lovers ever since we started our blog and social media posting.  In 2021, we shared a modern flower painting each month.  For 2022, we plan to bring you images by the German sculptor and photographer Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932).  The artist is most...

Today we want to share a great job we did in December.  This was designing and installing a large living wall to go inside the new headquarters of Griggs Homes.  Griggs, the long-established house builders, have a new head office in Borehamwood, and asked us to design a green wall...

Our choice of modern flower painting for December is a picture by Scottish artist Anne Cotterill (1933-2010).  It’s a good selection for this time of year, as it shows a jug full of Christmas roses.  Helleborus niger, to give it its  botanical name, are one of the few flowers to bloom...

We can't believe it's been a whole year since we moved into our new headquarters in Hatfield Road.  Sadly, due to the pandemic, this Christmas seems hardly more festive than it did last year.  However, we'll do our best to enjoy our seasonal break, and we hope you do too. ...

It's time for us to share this month's art for garden lovers, and this time it's a painting of anemones by Geraldine Girvan.  Girvan is a Scottish artist who was born in 1947.  She is a well respected artist here in the UK, usually painting flowers or cats, or sometimes both...

When designing a planting scheme for a new living wall, there's are several things to consider.  First, we have to think about the location, and whether the wall will be in full sun, partial shade or full shade.  Next we find out the client's preferences so that we can ensure...

Living walls have so many benefits As we've discussed before, living walls don't just look amazing, they also bring countless other benefits.  We all know they have a huge positive impact environmentally.   Plants filter the air, dampen urban noise, and provide habitat for wildlife.  They also remove carbon dioxide from the...

Every month we like to share some art for garden lovers.  Our choice for October is, ironically a spring picture.  We thought that due to the recent cold weather you might need a reminder of warmer seasons!  So, this month's painting is some David Hockney spring flowers.  It depicts flowers...
