Hard Landscaping

Our team of experienced landscapers will bring structure and form to you garden design using a variety of materials and textures to create different zones. Key design elements may include the use of paving, structural timber, fencing or screening, stone and gravels.

These allow us to create large entertaining areas, quiet sun traps for evening relaxation or fun exciting play spaces to occupy the children.

Soft Landscaping

With nearly 30 years of practical experience working in horticulture, Nigel Boardman’s extensive knowledge of plants and their application is invaluable in giving every garden design the right look and feel.

Soft landscaping – creating borders, adding planting zones and laying a new lawn – is often left as an afterthought. Not at Boardman Gelly! The heart of our garden designs is the soft landscaping – all the preparation and hard landscaping leads up to the final flourish, with plants, shrubs, turf and borders bringing our design and your garden to life.
