Landscapers in Marlborough

We can’t compete with the famous Marlborough Mound – according to legend the burial site of the wizard Merlin – which lies in the grounds of Marlborough College, but the Henry Timmis Ltd. landscaping team have left their mark in many gardens in the area.

As local Marlborough landscapers, we undertake a wide variety of hard and soft landscaping projects in and around this North East Wiltshire market town. We work in residential gardens and on commercial properties across the Marlborough SN8 postcode area, surrounding villages like Mildenhall, Aldbourne, Lockeridge, Burbage, Avebury, Great Bedwyn, Shalbourne and Pewsey, and everywhere inbetween.

We transform dull and boring outdoor spaces in Marlborough into attractive, practical grounds, handling the process from design and concept through to completion. Patios, ponds, retaining walls, terraces, pathways – even lakes and plantations – we do it all.

Founder of our company, Henry Timmis, is a former Royal Engineer with a host of relevant qualifications and experience gained during his military career, which has served him well as a landscaper and groundworks expert in Marlborough and the surrounding area.

He is backed up by a hand-picked team who share his enthusiasm, skillset and integrity.
