We are a small landscaping company based in Silsoe, Bedfordshire. Ben (proprietor) has been landscape gardening for 10 years and accumulated a wealth of experience in hard and soft landscaping. He is City and Guilds qualified in Landscape Design with distinction and is certificated in the RHS level 2 in Horticulture.
The Olive Tree Garden Company only use ethically sourced materials when using natural stone products. Many of the products available come from India and the supplier we use strongly believes in adhering to a strict framework of policies and regulation so that workers are not exploited and child labour is not used.
Further to this, most of our non-paving materials come from independent businesses rather than big chains. We feel this is important and that local businesses are supported.
Any turf that is used in the construction of your garden is of the highest quality. Our supplier has supplied turf to some of the Royal Palaces, golf courses and to a number of Premiership football teams.
We go to great lengths to stop our waste products going to landfill sites and as such have found organisations and businesses to re-cycle and re-use our waste. Any green waste that is accumulated is taken to be processed and recycled into the compost that we use for planting. Waste soil is recycled, screened and reused as topsoil for flower beds and turfing and hardcore is crushed and reused in the construction industry.
