Mr and Mrs A – 11th July 2020

Afternoon Kellie,

I have finally got round to taking some pictures of our garden, and remembered that I had promised to send you some so that you could see what we have done with Keith’s (designer) and Foras’s help.

Flight Bowl On Slate Plinth

We’re really pleased with it, hard to believe it was only completed last year.

Surmi Slate Trough

You can see how the various Foras pieces complement the design beautifully.

Sturgeon Slate Sculpture

The only change we are planning on is to extend the limestone patio around the water feature and raised beds so that we can comfortably walk out of the house and to the bench in bare feet!

Wing Water Feature Kit

Thanks once again,

M and S


E Mcd – 12th June 2020


The beautiful bowl I ordered has arrived in time for me to give as a birthday present.

Thank you so much for going out of your way to make this happen.

The person I spoke to on the phone was brilliant, I really appreciate it.

Thanks again,



Chris – 9th June 2020

Hi Kellie,

A belated photos of my Flight Bowl, it’s had plenty of use during those lovely hot days that we had!

Your friendliness and great customer service meant that I was more than happy to leave a positive review.

Hi Kellie,

I hope you and everyone in Foras are well.

I just want to say a big thank to you all for the beautiful water feature and the service you provided through all the process of buying, and care of making sure that everything is working correctly with my little beauty.

I love it.

Hazel – 15th May 2020

Hi Kellie,

I am absolutely over the moon to say that my birdbath has just arrived.

A am totally delighted with it in every way, and I want to say thank you very much indeed for all our effort in getting it to me this week.

I will be recommending Foras and its products to everyone I can think of!

Have a lovely day and weekend.

With best wishes,



Mr Alldred – 17th April 2020

Hi Jenny

Just to confirm that the bench has been delivered safely.

Very well packed, and we have just made it up in the garden.

Looks great.




Laura- 16th February 2020

Words cannot do justice to the emotions that the beautiful shark sandstone plinth evokes. Engraved with words for my daughter on which her cremation urn stands like an eternal candle of light. The excellent service, workmanship and support from start to finish has been outstanding. All of my thoughts, wishes and requests were supported and realised. I can’t recommend Foras enough. In addition to the plinth I ordered three Opus aged iron planters which I’m very excited to fill. Thank you Gemma Hudson, the engravers and the team. Laura Ward.

Carol- Barton Grange Garden Centre– 24th February 2020


Dear Kellie,

Thank you so much, the Crazy Golf Markers look absolutely fabulous!


Paul and Lesley- 11th February 2020

Dear Claire,

Your input has created something quite special in our world, we are so grateful to the Foras team for their amazing  input and unbelievable customer care. Our experience was fabulous and hopefully we can forward better photos when the project is complete.

Paul & Lesley

Suzanne A – 12th December 2019

Dear Kellie,

I just wanted Foras to know that I am delighted with my Belmont Rainbow Water Feature.

David Bizley and his team at Eden Art Scapes did an excellent job building a plinth with seating area around it to place the 60cm Belmont Rainbow Sphere on top.

It looks stunning lit up with the rainbow pebbles surrounding it.

David included 45 sq metres of paving in the design and I was full of admiration for all those involved as the weather was appalling, wet, windy and heavy water logged clay soil to deal with and never a complaint!

The cleanliness and attention to detail was outstanding, thank you for your recommendation.

Kind regards,



Jenny B – 24th September 2019

Hi Jenny,

Just to let you know my mum absolutely loved the bowl. So much so, she really didn’t want to put it outside!

Once again, thank you so much for sorting it in time.

Best wishes,



Helen S – 24th September 2019

Hi Jenny,

I just received my parcel, very prompt service and a professional courier.

I love my new planter it’s gorgeous! Exactly as pictured, I will be hanging it in my kitchen this afternoon.

Thank you for your kind help and service, you were so polite and friendly on the phone.

I will definitely be recommending this company to family and friends.

Kind regards,



Keith Llewellyn – Llewellyn Landscape and Garden Design – August 2019

Hi Kellie,

Just wanted to thank you again for the help you gave along the way with the project in Reepham.

I know the clients are really pleased with the paving, water feature, pots, bird bath and sculpture they had from you.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say that all of the materials, without exception, have been a real pleasure to work with and I hope to specify products from yourselves in future gardens.

The Sturgeon sculpture, positioned as it was in the midst of the wildflower turf we laid, was my personal favourite Foras feature!

Hope to speak again.

All the best,



Francis M – 30th July 2019

I have today received my Twist Rainbow Sandstone Bird Bath recently ordered via the Internet Gardener.

I Feel I must congratulate you on the professional and exceptional packing which has preserved in good condition my purchase.

So many times I have felt from various suppliers that corners have been cut in their product packaging. Not this time!

Well done, a pleasure to have been able to order from what is obviously a caring and thoughtful company.


Lesley and Malcolm – 17th July 2019

Hand Delivered Letter

Rosamund P – 16th July 2019

Dear Claire,

We have at last been able to visit Burnham Market once more and have taken the opportunity to choose the vase you kindly offered us, which we are delighted with.

We were most impressed with your new showroom and garden, and very much enjoyed meeting Emma, who is delightful!

We are so pleased with the Infinity water feature and Basa sculpture and I am attaching a couple of photos.

Kind regards,



Kerry H – 11th July 2019

Hi Jenny,

The pebbles arrived yesterday and they are wonderful, thank you so much.

They are really beautiful and exactly what we were after – when we have completed our project with them over the summer I will send you a picture.

Please can you thank your kind staff who obviously picked out all the stripy interesting stones, we are incredibly grateful.

Kindest Regards,



Antonia M – 10th July 2019

Hi Sam,

I hope you are well.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help with this and my parents are completely thrilled with the bird bath!

It is beautiful and I really appreciate all your help in getting it organised!




Isobel F – 18th May 2019

Dear Kellie,

Thanks again for your help and great customer service. We are hoping to get to the Garden party in June. I have RSVP’d!

Very best wishes,



Linda P – 16th April 2019

Tulip just arrived. Bench from last year. Both beautiful. Thanks Foras


Claire S – 15th February 2019

Hi Kellie,

Thank you for our benches.

The family are thrilled with them and they look amazing in the school grounds.


Mr Comley – 9th February 2019

Kellie, Eve, Sam and fellow collaborators,

My bench arrived quite late but no problem.

The delivery guy was excellent, he unpacked the case, carried the bits through the house and helped erect, build the seat.

He earn’t his cup of tea (I am sure the neighbours were unimpressed as his lorry blocked the road for 15 minutes).

It looks great, perfect. Thank you.

Best regards



Mrs Miles – 8th February 2019

Dear Claire, Kellie, and everyone at Foras,

What an amazing company!

I am very grateful for my beautiful memorial stone bench which is now being sited in a beautiful Sussex churchyard.

Everything at Foras is excellent, from the vision, to the quality and design of the goods, to the inscription writing, to the after care and communication, including delivery.

I cannot recommend this company enough.


Paul Collins (Trade) – 9th August 2018

Hi Claire,

In our business our suppliers ‘Values’ need to be the same as ours.

Service is as important as the quality of product, it is a welcome change to deal with a company that can deliver and support you and give you the best solution for your needs. 

We have to reflect and deliver quality, innovation and branding; that is our business, so it helps if your suppliers can do some of that too.

Thank you, it is a welcome change.

Best regards,



Mr and Mrs G – 27th July 2018

Hi Kellie,

The second piece of slate arrived yesterday – in excellent condition!  Would you please pass on our thanks to Mr. Wootton for his response to our concerns.

I would like to state that your company exceeded all our expectations regarding delivery of original item and after-sales service.  Everything was dealt with professionally and as quickly as possible.

Many thanks again.

Best Wishes,

A & D


Sandra Rushworth – 10th July 2018

I purchased the twisted sandstone birdbath and Strabo bench from Foras a few months ago.

Exceptional design and quality and very much admired by many people.

The items were even better than I anticipated and look so stylish.

Amazing customer service especially from Kellie which is refreshing these days.

Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

I am shortly going to order the Pandora birdbath as I have been so pleased with the Foras products.

Definitely 5 stars for product and service!

Regards Sandra


Sian Davies – 6th July 2018

Dear Eve,

The bench arrived safely last week, and looks great as you can see below!

It took an hour to unpack, so impressive was the packaging.

Thank you for a wonderful long term addition to our garden.




P Keogh – 5th September 2017

Really fantastic quality bench and such simple contemporary design. It really does complement the look of my new build home.

Delivery was straightforward to arrange and Foras arranged to deliver on a day convenient to me.



Mr & Mrs Boone – 16th August 2017

We have tiled our courtyard with Rainbow Sandstone slabs in 3 sizes and it is absolutely beautiful and wouldn’t be out of place in the Mediterranean.

To compliment this we bought 3 slanted Rainbow Stone planters and the Jasper curved bench which look amazing.

We have now just purchased the Bowl and Ball water feature in Rainbow stone and the overall effect is stunning and needs virtually no looking after.

When it rains the stone changes to an entirely different colour which again is amazing.

Discovering Foras was the best thing we ever did

Kind Regards


Paul Pleasance – 15th May 2017

We have had our Curved Rainbow Sandstone bench for a good few years now, and it really is just as beautiful as the day we got it.

Superbly crafted, and the colours are stunning – it looks amazing! It really is one of my favourite things……. I absolutely love it.

I have just cleaned it according to the company recommendations and it is as good as new.

Regards Paul


Sue B from Melton Mowbray – 17 January 2017

Hi Kellie,

Just wanted to thank you for sorting out the replacement vase, it arrived safe and sound and matches perfectly.

It has been great dealing with a company that cares for their customers, so thanks again.

I would recommend dealing with this courteous and professional company.

Kind regards,



Ian P from Bath – 7 December 2016

Dear Kellie,

Thank you for the safe delivery of my Foras Sandstone Sphere Water Feature Kit to my house in Bath last week.  

The sphere looks great, even in its packaging.  

Dave has installed the reservoir and grid and I look forward to the whole thing being in place before Christmas.  The only down side is that the electrickery is not being powered up until January.

Thanks for your help in providing the photos and my chosen sphere.

Best wishes for the Season.


Teresa –  21st July 16

I just wanted to let you know that the bench arrived safely on Tuesday and looks fantastic, it was just what I wanted.  

Great service.


Alan Macknish – 6 July 2016

As requested here is a photo of the finished floor from the materials we bought from you, now all we need is the new porch installing.

Thank you all for your first class service which made the whole experience a pleasure.


Frances &  Colin Boon – 9th July 2016

We cannot express the pleasure we get from our Jasper Bench. Just sitting on it in the garden and feeling the wonderful texture of the stone is so restful.

We love sitting there with a coffee just looking at the beautiful design of the rainbow stone slabs on the floor. The bench gives it structure and balance. Our favourite piece of garden furniture.


“Floral and Hardy” – November 2015

One of our clients’ main criteria when commissioning us to design their garden was that it should be low-maintenance but still look beautiful, and that went for the water feature too.

Fortunately Foras were just developing this new style of water feature with the pump concealed within the bowl beneath the rainbow sandstone sphere.

This meant no below ground reservoir to collect leaves and debris, making it much easier to maintain, whilst still giving this stunning visual effect.


Fred & Susan Graham – May 2015

“Hi Claire,

Fred and I just wanted to say thank you – we had a great trip to Foras on Saturday. It was lovely to meet you and wander round your showroom and garden. I filled all the planters on Sunday so we are starting to think of other spots where we could place some more. We also wanted to let you know that the lanterns arrived safely today too. It was a pleasure doing business with you – and we aim to repeat the experience”.


Mark & Tessa – February 2015

“Just to let you know that both Mark and myself are absolutely delighted with the bench and vases they fit in just perfectly. I am sorry the photos aren’t wonderful but it will give you an idea of what we had in mind when we were with you the other week. When the sun comes through the landing window the colours in the stone really do stand out, I’ve just got to find the right foliage/grasses for the vases.  Thank you again for all your help and no doubt we shall be back at some point in the future when we come to the back area”.

Kind regards,

Mark & Tessa


Diane & John- July 2014

In July 2014 an oil leak was discovered emanating from an AGA in the kitchen which required extensive floor restoration. We fortunately got FORAS involved as part of the insurance claim and without their input, ensuring that time-scales were met it would have dragged on for much longer.  We are delighted with the flooring and cannot speak highly enough of the staff and service provided, through what was for us a most difficult and stressful time. We are very grateful.
