About us


“Delivering a personal service based on wide ranging experience, with loyal, dedicated staff coupled with superb client relations”

“The design and execution of personal outside space is so important and impacts the way we live and enjoy our time at home”

Since the inception of Howell Landscaping in 1983 the company has been lead by Nick Howell with the aim of providing excellent workmanship and a value for money service for its clients.

The expertise, knowledge and supplier contacts gathered over more than 35 years enables Howell Landscaping to carry out a complete and diverse range of landscaping projects.

Nick is always the first point of contact for an initial enquiry and will work closely with the client throughout, managing each project, and offering guidance and advice along the way. Howell Landscaping work alongside a number of designers to create gardens to the client’s individual specifications.

The longevity of Howell Landscaping has flourished and established a courteous, loyal and an approachable team that offers a professional service. Their spirit and commitment for success underpins the company’s ethos.

With many returning customers we are able to really understand the needs of the client and their garden. Due to this bond a large portion of work is created through personal recommendations.

Howell Landscaping are accredited by BALI British Association of Landscape Industries.

Where we work

We are based in the town of Gillingham, North Dorset and the majority of our work is within this area and the neighbouring counties of Wiltshire and Somerset. However, we also travel further afield and in the past have completed projects in Hampshire and London.

What we do

We have experience ranging from small cottage gardens and contemporary town gardens through to large country house gardens, country estates, retirement homes, schools and hotels along with commercial grounds.

From patios, paths, pergolas and ponds to walls and water features our team have hands on experience with hard and soft landscaping projects often working alongside garden designers and contractors. With access to large plant equipment we are able to undertake significant ground works as and when necessary.

How we work

We have a wide range of contacts enabling us to source a plethora of unique materials supporting as many local companies as possible giving our clients a wide range of choices.

We also have overseas plant suppliers giving us the option to import specialised plants depending on client requirements.

We embrace traditional formal gardening and more modern concepts such as the ‘no dig’ concept for vegetable plots to wild flower turf and roof gardens. We also offer garden sketches to enable visualisation of the finished product.

Howell Landscaping has experience in executing total redesign which may include creating level outdoor areas to gardens on slopes and making the most of awkward and difficult spaces.

Our staff have excellent plant knowledge and can advise on specific plant care and border improvements, and ongoing care once the planting job is complete.

Uniquely, some of our clients have asked us to introduce bee hives, which Howell Landscaping continue to maintain and harvest.
