Situated in a valley carved out by the River Darent, a tributary of the River Thames, Dartford has a long and colourful history, having once been a flourishing market town in the Middle Ages. Before that, it was settled by the Romans, thanks to its strategic importance as a main crossing point on the Thames. In the 19th and early 20th century, Dartford was a heavily industrialised area but today, as many of these industries have disappeared and been replaced by retail developments, it has become something of a shopping Mecca for residents of Kent. Oakleigh Manor has been active in the area for some time, providing local residents and commercial organisations with a range of garden design and landscaping services.
We offer a professional and competitively priced service for garden design in Dartford and the surrounding area, for both commercial and domestic properties. Whether you would just like to change a few things around or you are looking for a team that can re-imagine your garden completely, Oakleigh Manor is the company to call. We have helped many people in Dartford to transform their outdoor spaces over the last few years and we are looking forward to helping many more in the future.
In order to create the perfect garden design, it’s important to consider both form and functionality. In other words, you need to make sure that your new garden is not just pleasing to the eye but practical too. If, for example, you often like to entertain friends and family during the summer months, you’re probably going to want a generously proportioned patio area where you can barbeque to your heart’s content. If you enjoy a daily swim, a pool could be an excellent addition to your garden. Whatever your needs and preferences, we have the knowledge and expertise to create a new garden for you that is both beautiful and eminently practical. A garden that you will enjoy spending time in whenever you have a moment to yourself.
Our approach to garden design differs from that of our nearest competitors in several important ways:

We appointed Oakleigh Manor to have our garden completely redesigned; adding a new patio and a large pergola. It was a big job taking several months to complete. We were away travelling at the time, so David kept in touch with us with suggestions for the planting plans and photos to show how the garden was progressing. David and Stuart were great to work with. They were professional, gave advice and David still pops over to make suggestions for new plants or shrubs. We use their garden maintenance team on a monthly basis. The team are courteous, professional and very good with our dog. We enjoy being in our garden and have had many admiring compliments from friends and neighbours.
From Victor’s amazing and imaginative design, through the whole careful build with the unobtrusive team led by the capable Luke, Stuart’s magical lighting and water feature, David’s wonderful planting and Rebecca’s updates throughout the whole process we have been so impressed with everyone at Oakleigh Manor. They have been so professional and we are absolutely delighted with our fabulous new garden.

Fantastic experience. Incredible job. Landscape gardening and a beautiful swimming pool in our garden. Cannot rave about this company enough. The attention to detail and looking after us so well from start to finish.
Oakleigh Manor took on the project to transform our large lifeless garden into a peaceful, contemporary, yet pretty haven and they certainly succeeded.
We chose Oakleigh Manor as they were able to fulfill everything we wanted for our front drive and garden.
