Winters have passed, good designs last.

My inspiration for this post came when I received an email from an old customer which began, “You transformed our wonderful garden, many moons ago, in Cambourne…”     I’d forgotten this one but, having been reminded, it is certainly worth sharing in a post as it is a good example of how a good […]
