Modern Mint Shop

Modern Mint Garden Design has been up and running for almost 8 months now.  As well as Garden Design services we also want Modern Mint to be a place to go to for interesting articles, garden knowledge AND we want to share with you in our shop products we love – products that are unusual, fun, sustainable and beautiful.

We want to promote people and organisations that produce items based on their own individual creativity (check out this great arm chair),Beachbum-170

Take a look and let us know what you think, more items are going up every day on the shop as we start to build up our collection of goods.

And if you MAKE any unusual products and would like to include them in our shop please do get in touch!
