Birdbaths & Water Features 

Water is a real asset in a garden and a great way to encourage wildlife. Birdbaths make a charming feature in gardens and are a good way to encourage local birds to visit. We try to stock an interesting choice of, many of which are hand carved from natural stone and have developed a lovely weathered look from being outside for many years. We also have a stock of old or unusual items that can be used to create unique water features, ranging from water-holding stone troughs and salvaged water tanks to wall masks and formal centre fountains. Making water features work often requires imagination and effort, but can be hugely rewarding.
