My company is a small craft orientated landscaping
business based in Cornwall, in the UK. We specialise in hard landscaping tasks, which
involve decorative stone and wood working with a final careful planting. The principle is
to use materials from the countryside, to make individual and different garden landscapes.
The topography influences the final design, which is practical, rather than for
appearance. All work has a long term guarantee.
Our gardening is based extensively on travel. We have worked in
America, Japan, India, France, Germany and Norway, where an eye for garden detail has
always been stimulating.

We work using well thought out and detailed sketches.
Providing the right design requires sensitivity to the area rather than overlain pencil
designs. Planting schemes are not overlooked, stressing practicality and keeping an eye to
ten years hence.
Our nursery is on a ten hectare old
quarry site, which we are rehabilitating. Here we combine landscaping
with fundamental organic practices, including years of
research on Quick Return Composting to provide plants, food
and wildlife. A recipe for Quick Return
Composting can be now be viewed from this site.
