Design and Care for the Garden

 

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.

As we approach Spring, we are continuing to create a six-acre garden. The canvas is now prepared for the planting of a water garden leading off to a secret amphitheatre garden which will take shape later in the year. We reshaped the existing lake with new drainage and work to balance pools, and the iconic wooden footbridge inspired by Monet garden at Giverny has just been constructed.  This season we’re also bringing to life a design to create a private kitchen garden for a family to relax in, which will 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 garden set in 350 acres. We’re starting to create a romantic, engaging garden within the old walls of an Oxfordshire garden with the finest materials, mature specimen trees, hardy perennials and herbaceous plants bursting with pops of colour for year-round interest. 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, from construction with our in-house landscaping team through to the 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, working to make sure their gardens are ready for the year, pruning plants and hedges, tidying beds and improving the soil condition with mulching and compost treatments. Our chosen specialist nurseries are delivering mature trees, multi-stems and container plants for clients.

We regularly maintain gardens in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, The Cotswolds, Warwickshire and London, many of which we have landscaped ourselves or contributed garden consultation and advice. view map
