Established since 1989, Wilson Gardening was founded by Gareth Wilson with the vision of creating works of art for people in their own gardens. Since 1989 we have undertaken many courses in garden design and garden maintenance and we are one of the longest established and well known gardning and landscaping businesses in Glossop, Derbyshire Tameside and beyond. Over the years ‘word-of-mouth’ has proved to be the company’s best advertisement and has been key to its success.
Before long, we were taking in some large commissions for our landscaping techniques, designs and our attention to detail, the business has since gone from strength to strength.
In 2012 we tried our luck with one of the worlds most renowned competitions RHS Tatton Park Flower Show which proved very successful as we came out with a Silver Gilt medal and "best in show" award for our garden entitled "Peak Reflections". After a year out we went back in 2014 with our garden entitled "Industrial Transitions" which we managed a gold medal and again "best in show" award undoubtedly our finest and proudest moment to date!
We also design and create cottage, japanese and mediterranean gardens with features and structures such as lawns, walkways, decking, pergolas, patios, and water features.
Our clients range from private householders through to schools and building contractors in search of their garden dreams! For our domestic clients, we offer a free consultation and quote by one of our qualified landscape designer, just call 07753 283 878.
We feel very strongly about the environment and our business carbon footprint. We therefore try to work locally so that we can either walk or bus to our consultations. If however we do jump in the car for those trickier journeys we try to offset these emissions within our planting schemes.
Our website has also been produced as carbon neutral, we recycle our business waste, try to reuse existing garden features in new and exciting ways, as well as and try to use locally sourced or recycled materials in all construction processes where feasible. It all requires a little more thought and planning during the design process but we love the challenges it presents!
"We recently used Gareth and his team to sort out our garden, we bought a old house which we renovated but left the garden till the house was sorted! The garden was in a bit of a state, overgrown, drystone walls that needed rebuilding, old garden structures that needed removing, and areas of garden full of rubbish and overgrown that needed regenerating and turfing. We had no idea where to start? Gareth was extremely helpful in suggesting ways to really improve the garden as well as sort it out, once we had agreed a plan Gareth's team arrived. His team were extremely courteous and very hard working, they went about the task quickly and always left everyday having checked with us that everything was OK. Gareth regularly attended to monitor progress and ensure that we were happy with progress, we made a few changes to the design plan as we progressed which were for the better, again Gareth and his team took all this in their stride.
The end result of all this is a garden that we are now proud of, it appears structured, a lot larger with new areas of lawn, new borders, a veg plot, rebuilt drystone walls, new fencing and gates. Gareth and his team have done us proud, we are really pleased with the work they have done for us and would definitely recommend them"
