We are so proud of our new garden. Chris gave us the confidence to leave it to the 'professionals.' Regular site visits from Toby meant we always felt part of the process. The whole operation was very slick, right from the initial design proposal to the final finishing touches. We sensed a genuine enthusiasm for the project that filtered down to the lads on the tools, whose passion and attention to detail was commendable. Many thanks to Aaron, Louis, Kieran and Luke. We are looking forward to finally enjoying our garden and literally watching it grow.

Oakham Gardens have been exceptional. We first contacted them in June 2022 just before we moved to Lavendon. As we were moving to a new house we had a blank canvas as our back garden. But having moved from a house with a considerable view, this new house had challenge as we had now view only of a very high red bricked retaining wall. Chris Howkins (co-owner) went away and drew up his initial ideas. I was then invited to a demonstration at their offices, which included detailed drawings and CGI's. What I saw blew me away. After a few changes they started work to suite our timescale on the back retaining wall first shortly after Christmas and were happy to delay the remaining works (at my request due to an extension we were building) until June 2023. Due to splitting up this project into two distinct halves we had two different Oakham Garden Teams. Team 1 was Led by Daley supported by Lewis and Will. They leveled the garden and constructed a large retaining wall. This was in January when they worked through some tremendous storms without so much as one complaint. Team 2 was led by Dan supported by Adam and Nick. They created the different patio and artificial grass areas. This second half of the project was completed in June and they worked through the heatwave we had. All of them were conscientious, hardworking, respectful and a joy to have around. I really cant thank all of them enough. Photos of before and after can also be seen below.

We ABSOLUTELY LOVE our award winning garden which is admired by everyone - and it’s all due to the dedication, commitment and skill of the Oakham Garden Services Team. Chris’s amazing and challenging design was turned into reality by the hardworking and always polite groundwork team under Will’s expert leadership. Toby’s (Contract Manager) considerable organizational skills pulled everything together. From conception to completion our thanks goes to everyone who had a part in this work of art. If you are planning garden improvements or complete redesign as we did, you won’t do better than to choose Oakham Garden Services. Rosemarie and Tony Duke

Very professional. The whole team were great from start to finish. The initial design was fantastic, within budget and beyond what I could have come up with. The finished garden looks exactly as designed. They were very accommodating to some changes along the way. Couldn’t be happier with service received and garden I now have. A+. 5 stars. 10/10.

Oakham Garden Services have been the best trades company we’ve had. They’re very friendly and the landscapers showed up on time everyday and worked to high standard, even in the rain and snow! Very impressed with Lewis, Daley and Luke’s work. We did have others on the job at different times but they were all equally great. Chris’s design blew us away while Toby did a great job of managing the project. The company also has great communication and Ben made our life easy by replying promptly to any questions or concerns we had. Overall, an amazing company with great employees. Highly recommend!

We used Oakham Garden Services for both garden design and installation. We have a garden that slopes in many directions, and several companies ran a mile when they saw it, but Chris came along and was excited to design something to make all areas usable while keeping maintenance low. However, it was Toby who made sure that the project ran smoothly, quickly sorted any issues and ensured everything was completed to a high standard. Detail and quality workmanship matter to Toby and he did whatever was necessary to give us the high-quality finish we desired and a garden we love. Every business needs a Toby!

Oakham Garden Services are just amazing. Chris took my concept, listened to my requirements and developed the most incredible design, taking account of all the important details we had discussed. Then Ben and the installation team delivered everything exactly as set out in the plans. The quality of the work is fabulous (and I have to admit to being a perfectionist) and the landscape team were incredibly polite, personable and tidy. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Oakham Garden Services.
