Garden Design, Landscaping & Maintenance

Welcome to The Oxfordshire Gardener – Passionate about horticulture and landscaping beautiful places.

A garden design, landscaping & horticulture practice nestled in an Oxfordshire barn conversion.  Together with clients we create and build gardens with their ideas and thoughts of lifestyle from hard landscaping to soft landscaping and complete transformations.

Our friendly, RHS Chelsea medal-winning garden designers work with our well-established team of in-house hard and soft landscapers to create gardens, built to exacting standards, whilst our expert gardeners care for all styles of established gardens throughout the year.

With summer on the horizon we are breaking ground on new landscape designs and meeting new clients. The build of a contemporary, atmospheric water-rill with bespoke oak arbour rail and limestone terraces for dining, leading across to a sixteen bed formal parterre with abundant planting looking out to the Chilterns comes to fruition. Source and selection of planting to create a wild-flower meadow. An enchanting waterside landscape build commences, linking the vertical and horizontal planes of a new lakeside jetty with the upper deck seating areas nestled to form a naturalistic scheme in Oxford. A North Oxfordshire cottage garden is being sensitively transformed with local Hornton stone walls and natural sandstone patio. A verdant has planting scheme combined with ambient lighting installed to our interior designers’ lighting plan completes this rural retreat. We continue to develop the landscape design to front of house and rear gardens at a Farmhouse with natural stone terraces, flint walls, pathways and expansive areas of soft planting for this summers’ enjoyment.

The garden design at a six-acre manor house continues. Inspired by the Monet garden at Giverny, the iconic wooden footbridge and water garden has been landscaped and will lead into a secret amphitheatre garden. We continue to work in their woodland with natural water sources, introducing and caring for native semi-aquatic and marginal planting scheme.

A landscaping scheme is complete working with an Oxfords  garden designer. Features include creating a circular sunken garden with bespoke hardwood seating, fire-bowl and Millboard deck oversailing a water garden with a plethora of soft planting and creation of a kitchen garden.

Since we built the generous edible ‘Peter Rabbit’ kitchen garden with Alitex greenhouse in a North Oxfordshire country house garden, our gardening team are propagating seeds, growing fruit, vegetables, salads and herbs and harvesting weekly for the kitchen and family to enjoy. This summer will see a cutting flower garden flourishing.

Our garden designers create harmonious spaces with clients, listening to their lifestyle, environment and wishes for a joyful garden.

Visiting long-standing clients and welcoming new gardens our team of expert gardeners are out in Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds pruning and planting. The weeds are growing profusely with this fine weather and the team are busy in the beds and borders weeding and tidying them. Feeding of shrubs and roses to give them a good start to the season. The tying in of climbers and rambling roses in gardens whilst plant supports for delphiniums, peonies and burgeoning herbaceous perennials are set-up or crafted in the garden. Planning, sourcing and selection of pots and plants for customers. We make compost for clients ready to improve the soil condition and apply lawn treatments throughout the gardening year. Our gardeners are on-hand with advice on plants, sourcing of specimens, trees, shrubs and plants from our chosen specialist nurseries who we receive weekly deliveries from at The Garden Barn.

We are delighted to have recently been appointed to give regular garden maintenance and year-round care for a beautiful manor house garden featured in ‘Homes & Gardens’ publication, restoring the important landscape of this historic Oxfordshire estate to its former glory, celebrating its heritage and providing ongoing care for its topiary, mature shrubs and climbing plants, herbaceous borders, lawns and lakes. We were also delighted to have previously been 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.

We create beautiful places and care for gardens with our clients, throughout the year in Oxford, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, The Cotswolds and London. view map
