'Sophia and her team have created the garden of our dreams; they worked efficiently and unobtrusively with the minimum of fuss and mess. We are delighted with the results.' Staindrop

'This is exactly what we wanted. It follows the brief; it's exciting, modern and fun. We can visualise the grandchildren running around the paths and getting lost. As novices we have found Sophia's knowledge of suppliers and materials particularly valuable. We have really enjoyed meeting and working with Sophia.'' Berwick

'The guests have been bowled over by the garden.' B&B, Alnwick
