Our Story


BETTER THINGS for the garden – a website that offers beautiful pieces for your garden that you will love.


Emily Erlam is an award winning garden designer who has become famous for making sumptuous country gardens and slick city gardens. Her focus is on making gardens that feel uplifting and comfortable whatever the location and size. Central to this are the objects that we use in our garden should look elegant, be functional and last a lifetime. 


Emily has spent years sourcing some of the best furniture, pots and accessories for her private clients and put together a collection based on her favourite products. Until now, some of these products were only available in other countries, or for professional specification only. All items have been tested for client satisfaction and durability. They have featured in some her favourite gardens and indeed in her own garden showroom in Kings Cross, Central London.


Over the years Emily has designed pieces of furniture for clients when she cannot find anything readily available on the market which suits the purpose. She has been fortunate enough to work with some of the best contractors in the industry and is collaborating with them to offer some of these products for your home gardens.


The website features a permanent collection of favourite furniture and tools that all have a certain ‘look and feel’ and you will love to collect as they all look good together. In addition, we are working with specialists to refresh the collection seasonally and offer new lines of products as they are developed.
