Gardens by Howbert & Mays

We have been designing and planting gardens for more than fifteen years - mainly private gardens but also some public spaces. Our garden design style is based around an understanding of plants and materials, well arranged and sensitive to each site. This year (2019) we are concentrating our energies on developing a range of planting schemes for use in our shops, and are working on existing jobs without taking on any new ones. However, we are on hand in our shops to answer any design and plant related questions you may have.
