M J Holgate Landscape Design and Construction is an environmentally conscious and responsible company. We are working hard to consider all aspects of our business and how we might reduce our impact on the environment. In particular, we are taking the following steps:

The waste we produce
  • we remove all waste and leave each work site as tidy as possible
  • we are a registered waste carrier and we dispose of all waste responsibly
  • we recycle waste where possible, for example our green waste is turned into compost locally
The materials we use
  • we use local materials and suppliers whenever possible
  • we use reclaimed materials, particularly paving and sleepers
  • we use timber from sustainable sources and certified suppliers
  • we can supply wildflower turf mixes to increase biodiversity in wildlife gardens
  • our Indian sandstone suppliers only provide us with ethically traded stone

Running the business

  • we are improving the running of our business, including moving to 100% recycled stationery
  • at home, we follow the 'reduce, reuse, recycle' mantra whenever possible!
