garden art plus 01

After the Christmas period, house and garden can often look a little tired and shabby and our thoughts frequently turn to ways we can rejuvenate the homestead. But it doesn't have to be a big project to make a real difference and invariably just a few new pieces can give our homes a whole new look. With this in mind, Garden Art Plus is well worth a visit.

Renowned for their first class range of reclaimed garden antiques including sundials, benches, urns, statues, birdbaths, fountains and saddle stones, this Hungerford institution can supply you with everything from pocket-size to outsize. If housing a life-size replica of Michelangelo's David presents you with logistical problems there are smaller sculptural pieces available from as little as £20.

In addition to their own impressive stock, Garden Art Plus have been hosting a series of fabulous pop up shops in the Garden Art Barn. Recent visitors have included the great clothing range from Jack's Jeans, quality giftware from Harpermack's and fine food and drink courtesy of Gastro Nick's.

Garden Art is open Monday - Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-5pm. You will find them at Barr's Yard, 1 Bath Road, Hungerford. RG17 0HE. Call 01488 686811 or go to www.gardenartplus.com
