Highover - Lounger on the cliff edge in July

Our offices are perched on the red Devon cliffs overlooking Lyme Bay, in Naila's garden, at 'Highover' in Dawlish, between Exeter and Newton Abbot, in East Devon.


The almost one acre, sloping, south-facing garden, has superb sea views, and has featured in all the major gardening magazines, in the Sunday newspapers, on BBC, ITV and Channel 4, and in several recently published books on garden designers, coastal garden design, seaside gardens and seaside gardening. Few Exeter garden designers have the benefit of such constant inspiration just outside their office door.


Naila's experience of coastal gardening and coastal garden design has made her something of an expert on seaside gardening. Although the pressure of garden design work does not allow her as much time in her garden as she would like, 'Highover' is used by Naila as a test bed for her garden design and planting design ideas.

Below is an article Naila wrote for the Telegraph outlining a few of the tasks she carries out in her own garden. A treasured garden in which she spends every spare minute she has.
