About Us

Nicholsons is situated at The Park in North Aston where we have a 22 acre nursery growing peat free plants under the UK Plant Healthy Scheme.

Nicholsons employs over 170 qualified and professional staff to manage their annual turnover of over £12 million. Our core business is focussed on landscape services from Garden Design and construction through to planting and maintenance by highly trained individuals. As founding members of the not for profit Forest Canopy Foundation, our forestry division has over 40 years of designing and maintaining woodlands across the region and are leaders in planting for Climate Change mitigation.

On Friday 21st January 2022 we were delighted to announce the merger of Nicholsons and Lockhart Garratt.

By combining two of the industry’s most experienced service providers in landscape design, forestry and environmental planning, we can now offer a unified high-quality service to all of our clients, integrating consultancy advice with contracting support, providing continuity and reassurance for plant supply, resources and materials.
