About us

Green Onion Landscaping – Professional landscape gardeners who provide attention to detail on every landscaping project.


Green Onion Landscaping has been successfully trading as a local garden landscaping business since April 2006. Andy Smith, the owner of Green Onion Landscaping began landscaping in Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside as an apprentice at 17 years of age. Once completed he became a fully qualified, highly skilled, creative landscape gardener, designing and creating beautiful gardens all around the North East of England. After many successful years working for someone else and managing their company, Andy decided to run his own business and so the success that is Green Onion Landscaping was born.

What do landscape gardeners do

Landscapers use their talent for garden design and passion for practical work to design, craft, regenerate and maintain outdoor spaces and gardens in and around Teesside, Tees Valley, County Durham and North Yorkshire. 

The creative side of a landscape gardener’s job involves two main stages:

  1. Briefing and design. Our landscape gardeners will meet with their client to discuss their wants and desires for the proposed landscaping project. Once a few decisions have been made the landscaper will  then produce a series of rough sketches/plans/designs which will be e-mailed to the client.
  2. Once the garden designs are finalised, the landscape gardener will be responsible for taking care of the business side of things: hiring equipment,procuring all of the required materials, such as wood, cement, soil, paving, slate chippings, pebbles etc.

Where did the name ‘Green Onion’ come from?

The name, ‘Green Onion Landscaping’ was derived from Andy’s love of 1960’s Mod and Garage music; in particular Booker T and The MG’s musical track ‘Green Onions’.

Andy is a very talented musician. The former lead singer and guitarist of Jarvis Humby, a garage/soul band who were signed to the American record label, ‘Wicked Cool’ in 2007 (Owned by ‘Little Steven’ Van Zandt, Bruce Springsteen’s guitarist/producer).

In 2011 Andy lived his dream. He was asked to support Booker T and The MG’s at their ARC gig in Stockton-on-Tees. The night was a storming success. Read the Gazette article here.
