Peaceful and unassuming, this traditional farmhouse with extensive unused concrete yards has been transformed to accommodate a serene pool garden and terraces for quality family time. In the walled garden, beehives and cool lawns, combined with dark tone tiles and cover give a wonderfully natural environment for swimming

Nicholsons Garden Design - The Tranquil Farmhouse

I would like to express how we as main contractor enjoyed to opportunity is having Nicholson’s carry out the extensive and complex landscape works, both hard and soft.  The ability to explain the process of their works and keeping to programme were key on the site. Nicholson’s team on site were brilliant, always helpful and  willing to assist wherever possible.

Graham the foreman was excellent and a great ambassador for your company.

Nothing was a problem, and if there was a difficult site detail to work around, you always had the solution.The quality of the works was outstanding.

I would not hesitate to use or recommend Nicholson’s to other customers/clients in the future.

My wife and I have no hesitation in highly recommending Liz Nicholson and her colleagues at Nicholsons.

From the execution of her drawings and plans to the deliberation and follow-up, her work has been exemplary. What Liz says she is going to do, she does; from barns to terraces, interiors or exteriors, and we are extremely lucky to have Nicholsons in West Oxfordshire.

If anyone would like to drop me an email to I would be pleased to answer any questions or queries that you may have on the outstanding work carried out by Liz and her team at my home in Wootton, West Oxfordshire.

I cannot recommend Liz and her team more highly.
