"We had a very tired front garden and very few ideas on what to do with it. Within minutes of being on site for the design consultation Claire and Maisy were clearly buzzing with ideas and a vision for the space. From the initial consultation to the final delivery of the garden, the team at Sculpt were great to work with. We love our new outdoor space and continue to get compliments on it."
