🍏 Made some new friends today, chatting about their pretty little garden looking out over the bay in Fowey. We were also given a tour of their beautiful cottage right on the sea front. We will be back to stay! @76esplanadefowey #coastalgardens #seaviews #seafrontgardens #coastalretreats #gardendesignbythesea #gardenwithaview

What our customers say

After five years, our garden is maturing into a wonderful space which is used daily and has given us such lasting pleasure. We couldn't have wished for a better design!

Elaine Persin

Sarah really understood the challenges we were trying to solve with the garden. She has a wealth of knowledge on plant types for colour, structure, scent and seasonal interest. Creating a scheme that has added beautiful views and value to our home.

Sam Honey

Sarah was great. We wanted to dramatically change our front garden but did not really know how to achieve this, Sarah came up with a few designs (that were amazing). We would not have our garden now which we still love 3 years on if not for Sarah
