Sustainability and what it means to us...
Here at Bow, we love all things outdoors & Devon, so it is in our DNA to care about nature and the impact we have upon it. Therefore we have signed up to support the Horticultural Trades Association sustainability pledge.
As a team we have made a commitment to be more eco-driven whilst creating your dream gardens. We are not perfect but are improving all the time.
Take a look at some of the changes we are making to become a more environmentally sustainable business...

We support local growers & local food produce by purchasing from local suppliers wherever possible.
Our lighting will all become 100% LED.
