Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt employs over 200 qualified and professional staff to manage their annual turnover of over £12 million.
Nicholsons was established in 1979 offering a forestry consultancy and contracting service in the wake of the Dutch Elm Disease. From 1992, Niel ran the forestry business and by 1997, Liz joined the team establishing the garden design and landscape contracting business.
Following a merger with Lockhart Garratt in January 2022 Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt now offers a unified range of environmental, landscape, planning and forestry services – all under one roof.
Their core business is focused on landscape services from garden design and construction through to planting and maintenance by highly trained individuals.
Having developed from a family background, they understand the importance of working as a team. As winner of Oxfordshire’s Large Business of the Year Award 2019, they ensure that every member of the company feels supported and encouraged in their work. Working with natural resources daily allows them to understand that these are precious commodities, therefore Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt focus their energy into education outreach projects e.g., establishing Forest schools in the UK and the formation of Maasi women’s tree growing project in the Mara Kenya. In a world of increasing complexity, it is vital to have clear aims and aspirations. As a team, they are motivated to achieve these.
Nicholsons Lockhart Garratt’s focus is on building long-term relationships with their clients, offering independent, innovative, solution-focused advice on all aspects relating to the natural environment.
The directors want to guide the business to become one of the most trusted and respected multi-disciplinary consultancies and contractors in this dynamic sector.
