LANDSCAPE AND GARDEN DESIGN

Welcome to Landscaping & Garden Design by Oakleigh Manor

We build beautiful gardens and external features, creating stunning enhancements for you, your home & your lifestyle. Our talented teams of Landscape Craftsmen help you turn your dreams in reality, creating stunning Gardens, Landscapes & External Spaces in Kent and the south east.

Expect More from Your Landscape Gardeners

We at Oakleigh Manor are proud of our award winning reputation and strive every day to earn the continued trust and confidence of our customers. The temptation would be to sit back and coast on that reputation, but that is not who we are. We believe you have a right to expect more from landscape gardeners in Kent than the obvious and the everyday, and that the company you enlist to create your garden should always act in your best interest, not theirs.

From your first phone call you will understand why so many discerning homeowners in Kent choose Oakleigh Manor. We foster creative partnerships with our clients that make the design and implementation process a rewarding adventure. You’ll never feel like a stranger observing events from the outside, and at jobs end, you will know as much about the details of your landscape gardening scheme as those who designed and implemented it on your behalf.

The Difference Between Landscape Garden Design and Standard Garden Design

Oakleigh Manor landscapers in Kent create more than your standard gardens. We seamlessly meld landscaping with garden design to produce landscape gardens that dovetail with their surroundings and enhance the backyard experience far beyond what a few flowers and a hedgerow can do. When creating your landscape and garden design we lean heavily on the principles of landscape gardening. By that we mean our designs:

Adhere to the principle of enclosure – A garden by definition is a kind of enclosure and so any landscape garden design must create a significant feeling of enclosure that is, at the same time, not overbearing. That enclosure must also feed into and out of other components of the landscaping and do so in a logical and effortless way.

Look for and develop regulating lines – Just about any significant feature in a landscape can be used to anchor what’s known as a “regulating line”. It could be a walkway, a pergola, a tree or anything else. This regulating line can then be used to create rhythm and visual tension or to impose geometric order.

Embrace size – If there is a debate about whether to go with a wider or narrower path or a bigger or smaller flower bed going bigger is almost always the right choice. There may be specific instances where less is more. But in the preponderance of cases what’s true for most other things in life is also true for landscape gardening: less is just less.

When it comes to plants there’s value in going big to small – With landscape gardening, you are creating a multifaceted experience that is visual, tactile, emotional and intellectually satisfying all at the same time. One way to ensure a landscape garden has gravitas is to plant big to small. That means starting with the biggest living things – the trees – and working down in scale all the way to the choice of ground cover.

We’re not afraid of repetition – Mixing things up is a great and proven way to create visual interest. But it’s not the only way. Sometimes creating a mass of the same shrub, bush or tree can produce a mesmerising effect that also moves the eye along in a pleasing way and unifies otherwise disparate elements of the landscape design.

Landscape gardening is big picture gardening that uses the entire property as the canvas. Not everyone is able to pull it off. Oakleigh Manor landscapers in Kent are notable exceptions.
