Garden Design, Landscaping & Maintenance

Welcome to The Oxfordshire Gardener, passionate about horticulture and landscaping with nature. A garden design, landscaping and maintenance Oxford practice, with friendly, RHS Chelsea medal-winning garden designers working with our in-house team of expert hard and soft landscapers and horticulturists. We are garden makers who create, build, plant and care for gardens with our clients throughout the year.

We welcome March in with the landscaping of a garden designed with views over the river Thames and at Boars Hill, Oxford whilst breaking ground on new design projects. A generous natural yorkstone terrace with stone retaining walls and bespoke curved Oak pergola, to support an existing mature grapevine, has been completed for a garden in Summertown. Now ready for the prairie planting scheme and lawn whilst rejuvenating existing mature planting. To the front of house we are installing hardwood gates and planting a semi-mature taxus baccata hedge. The garden design at a six-acre Oxfordshire manor house continues, inspired by the Monet garden at Giverny, the iconic wooden footbridge and water garden scene created will lead into a secret amphitheatre garden this year. We continue to work in their woodland with the natural water sources and planting.  We have started a fresh landscaping design project with a talented Oxford garden designer featuring a bespoke fire-pit seating area, Millboard deck oversailing a water garden, kitchen garden and mature specimen planting. We commence the build of a generous kitchen garden with beautiful Alitex greenhouse in North Oxfordshire where our gardening team will grow and manage the edible garden for the family.

Our garden designers create harmonious spaces with clients, understanding their lifestyle, environment and wishes for a joyful garden. We undertake all stages of landscaping with our specialist in-house landscaping team from hard landscaping through to soft landscaping and garden care using best horticulture practice. We were delighted to be asked by The Big Feastival with Alex James to design and produce The Little Patch ‘grow your own kitchen garden’ with Daylesford Organic at Alex’s Farm, Kingham, Oxfordshire.

Visiting new and regular customers; our team of expert gardeners are pruning plants, trees and cutting hedges, digging and tidying beds and borders. We make compost for clients ready to improve the soil condition applying lawn and soil treatments throughout the gardening year. Our gardeners help with advice on plants. We source from our chosen specialist nurseries, with one such scheme of majestic magnolia grandifloras for an evergreen boundary scene with hedging plants, multi-stem specimens and trees to plant and harmonise in the garden of a period property. Recently we have been appointed for regular garden maintenance to care for an NGS garden in Oxford and a beautiful manor house garden, featured in ‘Homes and Gardens’ publication. We restored the important landscaping of a formal Oxfordshire estate garden of historic note celebrating it’s heritage and ongoing care including topiary, mature shrubs and climbing plants, herbaceous borders, lawns and lakes.

Our in-house team of landscape gardeners and horticulturists build, plant and care for gardens in Oxford, Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, The Cotswolds, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and London. view map
