We specialize in all things sustainable in the world of landscaping and gardening from rain gardens, green roofs, low input gardening, rain barrels, xeriscaping and drought tolerant landscaping, habitat creation, and more. We have a full service landscape design, build and sustain team that creativity blends the beauty of traditional ornamental horticulture with cutting edge sustainable practices.
We have worked on many residential and commercial green landscape projects. One large scale landscape that we designed and installed was for the Oldham County Library which received Gold LEED certification. We have provided our plants and horticultural and design knowledge to green roof projects around town and will be working on the Louisville Zoo's Green Roof soon, with several others in the pipeline. We have also installed many rain gardens, bioswales, veggie gardens, low maintenance and low input gardens and turned many a suburban backyard into a pesticide free oasis creating habitat for birds and wildlife.
The Boone Gardiner Green Team has been a dream of Matthew Gardiner’s since his days back on the University of Kentucky campus. While studying Horticulture and Agriculture he learned of the negative aspects of many common practices that our society unthinkingly does to the earth and of possible positive practices that can be employed instead with proper management. Matthew was the past President of the Uof K student chapter of the Sierra Club. His wife, Hope, was the Organic Farm inspector for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and was involved in the start-up of the successful “Kentucky Proud” campaign.
