Based in Bristol,

Elmtree were established in 1969 primarily by our current Chairman Keith Lynch to carry out domestic gardening work, but rapidly expanded into carrying out landscaping within the housebuilding sector and small scale construction projects.

Over the years we have developed significantly into carrying out much larger contracts within our three main sectors of:


Construction Projects

Grounds maintenance for the commercial, new build sector and housing associations

We are different

We think we are a little different from many other landscapers for many reasons. Above all, we care about what we do and will not hand over a job to the Client until we are happy with it ourselves—it has to meet our own high standards and hopefully exceed the Clients.

Our team members take such pride in their works, often sharing photos of completed projects on their own social media pages.

We believe that our people are our most important asset. All members of our team are directly employed, although we have built up a reliable network of sub-contractors that match our own high standards for some specialist works

Elmtree are members of BALI (British Association Landscape Industries), and are accredited to SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement), as well as CHAS

In April 2012 we were proud to be awarded Investors In People.

Elmtree were delighted to win the 2018 Pro Landscaper Supreme winner award along with the Landscape £2m-£10m turnover award.

We have won multiple BALI Awards for our projects

In 2019 we celebrated 50 years of service and also received Crest Nicholson South West Sub-contractor of the year award.
