PHS Greenleaf has turned heads at the fifth Ashes Test between England and Australia, after being chosen to decorate the legendary Oval Cricket Ground pavilion.

Decorating the Oval

We were delighted to have the honour of decorating the legendary Oval Cricket Ground for the fifth Ashes Test Match.

The final Test match of the Ashes kicked off at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground on Wednesday 21st August, with England eyeing a 4-0 win against Australia.

But it is the exterior flower display that is really causing a stir, with a range of stunning planters positioned across the famous Pavilion.

PHS Greenleaf, the leading supplier of interior plant displays and exterior landscaping in the UK, has been working flat-out to design a display that perfectly complements the architecture of the Oval.

After cultivating an array of plants and flowers in one of the Greenleaf dedicated nurseries, the traditional handmade planters were installed yesterday by the Waltham Abbey Greenleaf team.

Keith Kirkham, Commercial director of PHS Greenleaf, said: “We were delighted to have the honour of decorating the legendary Oval Cricket Ground for the fifth Ashes Test Match.

“Large projects like decorating the Oval require a level of skill and investment that only specialist companies like Greenleaf can provide.

“With over 20 years of experience, PHS Greenleaf was the obvious choice for creating a lavish exterior display.

“Now, all visitors and guests can enjoy the display on the Pavilion as we watch England try to secure a historic 4-0 series victory.”
