Boast About the Garden was started in 2001, initially offering garden maintenance and simple landscaping services. A family run company, it has now developed into an award winning design and build business, capable of managing all kinds of outdoor projects, both large and small, delivering consistantly high standards, using high quality materials and completed by hard working, experienced staff working to the latest methods and standards at all times.
As owner and project manager, Robert started the business in 2001, coming from a family of keen gardeners. He obtained advanced NVQ level 3 certificates in garden design and construction, and has been designing and building gardens ever since, always insisting on very high standards of excellence on every single project.
A husband and father of 3, he is also a part time horticultural lecturer, having qualified as a post 16 teacher in 2015, and a dedicated Ipswich Town fan.
Paul has been part of the team since 2006, also obtaining advanced NVQ level 3 certificates. He has developed into an exceptional landscaper, always offering ideas and creative solutions whatever the situation, and always strives for the highest standards of finish at all times.
As a husband and father of 3, Paul is a big football fan and enjoys his family time.
Polly joined us in August 2021 and is now completing a level 2 apprenticeship to become a qualified Landscape operative, under the guidance of Robert and Paul. She comes with a fantastic attitude and is not afraid of hard work, coming from a background in Livery and Horse work. She brings a real desire to learn and already shows many of the qualities which we need within our business to ensure we always give the best outcomes for our clients. She is already a real asset to the business.
Lynda, Robert's sister, is a very experienced horticulturalist, who has been gardening all her adult life. She provides regular care and maintenance to many of our previous projects, and has a great knowledge of shrubs and herbaceous perennials and prides herself on picking up every single leaf! A wife and mother to two, she enjoys family life and is a lifelong fan of Ipswich Town.
