We believe the beauty of plants; their shapes, their foliage, their natural colours, can absolutely be classed as a form of art.

Garden Sculpture Ideas

We often use sculpture within the gardens we design as it is perfect for providing the essential focal point in a garden layout to draw the eye. Every piece is unique and designed to complement the planting and landscape design as well as the personal design style of the garden owner.
