About the employer

The Garden Village brand was established in 2009, however, our roots began in the Landscaping and Garden design sector. Our passion for garden design and landscaping projects led us to consider other ways of making your garden space more appealing to the eye, hiding away those unsightly objects that we all have. With this in mind we designed, developed and manufactured the very first wheelie bin storage unit in the UK.
