New Online Garden Shop

As a garden designer, I am not always rooted to my drawing board but out and about seeing new clients and travelling to some beautiful parts of the British countryside.
Wherever I find myself, I always try to source craftsmen and women who make some products that could be incorporated into the scheme and are local to the area. To have something hand-made and bespoke in a garden makes it feel all the more special, whether it be a chestnut fence or hazel pergola, willow fencing or a coppiced wooden gate… each one will be unique.
Bespoke Hazel Arch
I hope in some way by using artisans, I helping to keep traditional skills alive and I often find that I can specify a range of garden structures but have also discovered that many of these skilful artisans make stunning smaller and useful hand-held items such as brushes and baskets, which I now offer in my recently launched online garden shop and use many of them myself in the garden.
Some of these lovely products are unique to the shop and you can see them by visiting shop.claudiadeyongdesigns.com or by using this direct shop link.
Below is a small selection of some of these wonderful products for your garden. I am always happy to source vintage or unusual products and if you have any questions or want to make up your own gift basket for a special occasion, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
