"Gardens are not momentary purchases; they are weathered worn-in spaces, arranged and crafted by hand and imagination"
We are a garden services company working out of Shepton Mallet, Wells, Glastonbury, Bruton and Frome including all surrounding villages. For major projects, we take in the rest of Somerset, Wiltshire, Devon and Dorset.
We undertake the full spectrum of garden work including: garden maintenance and regular gardening; garden landscaping and construction; garden design and consultation; and garden tutorial and advice
Our founder Matt has worked as a gardener for over 15 years, building a vast array of skills and knowledge within the horticultural industry. He has gained qualification through botanical gardens and is the previous Head Gardener at Kilver Court in Somerset, he is also a published garden writer. As a garden designer, he has built a reputation for curating gardens to the highest modern standard that balance harmony to nature and creative flair and style. An intuitive and deeply knowledgable plantsman, his plant-led designs take echoes from the rich traditions of the past and combine them with the cutting edge in contemporary innovation. In a changing climate, our gardens must look to the future, and Matt's gardens establish a robustness to face this challenge with an aesthetic beauty that reflects the natural world.
Our signature ethos is to take a long view, bespoke approach to every garden or project. Knowledge, skill, style and vision are hard-worn through years of endeavour and these attributes are brought to bear to shape gardens into extraordinary spaces
Our designs look to elevate spaces beyond the functional and into the desirable.
Plants and elemental materials combine in carefully orchestrated harmony to bring form, structure, colour and playfulness into otherwise forgotten and shapeless areas.
Our own style will always adapt to every new project and collaboration with a view towards making a garden set for the present day and sustainable towards the future
Matt has been published many times on all manner of different subjects throughout the gardening and horticultural world. His writing typically looks beyond only what you can see in the garden and begins to unravel the layers of mystery and intrigue that they possess. He says himself:
"A passion for gardening is like drinking from a cup that never runs dry, and writing distils the discourse that flows from this endeavour"
Matt also does talks, lectures and gardening masterclasses and to book him for either these or writing commissions then contact either through email or phone listed at the bottom of the page or on the Regenerative Gardening blog linked below
