Bowles & Wyer
 

Our multi award-winning maintenance team is highly skilled in developing your garden and ensuring it’s a landscape to last.

Sometimes we tend gardens we’ve designed and built. Often we take on an existing landscape – bringing fresh ideas, continual care and long term plans.

Good horticulture is at the heart of what we do, which is why we have founded Hort Academy, our own pioneering training programme for all our employees. It’s designed to foster a deep knowledge of plants, how to nurture and tend them, and how to keep a landscape at its best all year round. With our highly respected team of horticulturalists, every client can look forward to a landscape that will grow with them.

Founded in 1993, we’re a team of around 50 based in Hertfordshire and we work on projects across the UK. Our turnover topped £5.5 million last year and we’re enjoying continued, steady growth. We’re well known in our industry and play a key part in industry bodies and initiatives. Regulars at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, we’re respected for our creativity and integrity.

  • “We have found Bowles & Wyer to be responsive, helpful and exceptionally committed to quality. Although not the cheapest, we do think of them as delivering real value. So much so that they continue to maintain the garden and woodland today!”
