Engraving
Over the years we have been asked to engrave all sorts of wonderful
creations. Our on-site engraver can work his magic with text or elegantly
simple picture designs. Working on diverse projects, from the large lettering
on the bespoke Temple we made for the RHS Chelsea Flower show, to
a specially commissioned bench, engraved to commemorate the 800th
anniversary of the Magna Carta, we’ve even had columns engraved in school
colours and made a bright hop-scotch for a local playground. He’s even gilded
antlers gold for the famous Laskett Gardens for Sir Roy Strong. With over 40
years’ experience, Nigel Hartfield is Kent’s finest. He specialises in gold leafing,
flush lead, raised lead, painted or carved lettering, in a vast range of fonts and
styles, hand cut to make your message stand the test of time.

Many customers ask for personal engravings across our range. One customer
engraved the lyrics of the Bride and Groom’s first dance on a bench and had
it delivered to their garden while they were on honeymoon! Whether it’s a
significant date on a planter, a poem or phrase to commemorate a special
birthday on a sundial pedestal, or a memorial on an urn to remember a loved
one, we have a wide range of options available. Our experienced sales staff
can sympathetically assist you to select the right ornament and engraving
for your needs.
