Garden Design

The Nicholsons Design Studio has been designing beautiful gardens for 20 years. Founded by Managing Director, Liz Nicholson, the design team have produced award winning gardens, celebrating the hidden potential in every landscape. Above all, we like to fulfil and exceed our clients’ expectations; we listen carefully to what you hope to achieve and use our experience to produce a unique and bespoke design.

We are best known for work with manor houses, country estates, heritage properties and Oxford town houses for private clients.

The cost of landscaping a garden varies hugely depending on the size of the space and the complexity of the design. As a general guideline, we recommend budgeting a minimum of 10% of your property value for a complete garden construction, with a further 1% put aside for design and survey fees.

Your budget will be discussed from the outset of your enquiry to ensure your design creates a garden that is achievable.

“The design process was personally managed by Liz Nicholson who we found to be creative, straight-talking, a good listener, pragmatic, and balanced in her challenge of our pre-conceived ideas. The visuals that were produced were of a high standard and greatly assisted us in envisaging the end-product. The agreed design was effective in addressing the primary objectives that we had set out before the start of the project.

“From the start – brilliant throughout. Minimal disruption and you took the time to look after our property. You have done a great job and we are looking forward to the coming months to see the impact on the garden. We hope to continue working with you, an absolute pleasure to deal with”
