Loved by previous clients

"This is exactly what we wanted. It follows the brief; it's exciting, modern and fun. We can visualise the grandchildren running around the paths and getting lost. As novices we have found Sophia's knowledge of suppliers and materials particularly valuable. We have really enjoyed meeting and working with Sophia."
"Thank you Sophia. You have planned and planted a beautiful garden for us which is admired by visitors and passers-by. It has already given us much pleasure and we know it will continue to do so for many years to come."

We only work with other professionals

Sophia’s Gardens creates your gardens with the assistance of trusted landscapers throughout the North East of England. I choose vetted contractors that are appropriate to the size of your project and your budget. I can help you to appoint and coordinate other professionals such as surveyors, structural engineers, fabricators, arborists, and artists.
