Welcome to The Oxfordshire Gardener
We are a design, landscaping and garden maintenance practice passionate about horticulture and making the most of the garden. The practice has friendly, RHS Chelsea and Malvern award-winning garden designers, a knowledgeable and experienced landscaping team and horticulturists who care and nourish gardens throughout the year.
This month we are landscaping within the old walls of a Woodstock garden creating a natural stone terrace with Cotswold stone walls, selection and planting of mature specimen trees, hardy perennials and herbaceous plants bursting with pops of colour for year-round interest. We continue to create a six-acre garden in south Oxfordshire, the canvas is now prepared for water garden planting leading off to a secret amphitheatre garden to take shape later in the year. We reshaped the existing lake with new drainage and work to balance pools, and construction of the iconic wooden footbridge inspired by Monet garden at Giverny. We’re also bringing to life a design to create a private kitchen garden for a family to relax in, to include the sourcing and laying of reclaimed Yorkstone to the rear of the kitchen, trained fruit and an abundance of herbs, within a significant contemporary Oxfordshire garden set in 350 acres. The landscaping of a relaxed, informal garden in central Oxford has been completed whilst another Oxford garden receives an uplifting design balancing formality with soft swathes of planting.
We develop harmonious spaces through understanding our clients’ wishes for their gardens. We undertake all stages of garden design, landscape construction with our in-house landscaping team through to soft landscaping, using best horticulture practice. We were delighted to be asked by Jamie Oliver’s 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 have been appointed to maintain and continue planting through the seasons a beautiful manor house garden, featured in ‘Homes and Gardens’ publication, and to restore the historically important landscaping of a formal estate in Oxfordshire. We continue to visit new and regular customers, pruning plants, digging and tidying beds, improving the soil condition with mulching and compost treatments. We are cutting lawns and giving Spring treatments. Our chosen specialist nurseries are delivering the first flush of plants, multi-stems and trees for clients.
We regularly maintain gardens in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, The Cotswolds, Warwickshire and London, many of which we have landscaped or contributed garden consultation and advice. view map
