During the summer we visited Garden Art Plus located in Hungerford. A company that specialises in globally sourcing and supplying garden antiques ranging from contemporary garden furniture to antique sundials. As a garden designer it was like walking into an Aladdin’s Cave of wonder, with fabulous and unique items that I would love to incorporate in to many of my garden designs. Needless to say a long time was spent browsing, here are some photographs!
No Up-cycling Needed
You may recall my blog about Garden Salvage Chic where I talked about not throwing away ‘old stuff’ but using imagination to upcycle. The items at Garden Art Plus take this to a new level, they are wonderful just as they are, no up-cycling needed. I can visualise a garden filled with an eclectic mix of antiques that would capture the interest of people visiting and start many conversations. Or perhaps one or two signature items placed perfectly as beautiful garden sculptures or magnificent planters
Certainly something that will be considering as I start designing and building gardens this year!
Garden Art Plus definitely worth a visit, I am confident that you will be as amazed as I was. Here is a link to their website for more detail – https://www.gardenartplus.com
And the best thing for me… all these items are reclaimed to be re-used. Sustainability at the very core – brilliant!
