Lawn Maintenance


ABOUT US
 

Petersham Gardens is a family-run business, founded over 30 years ago by one of the directors, Stephen . What started as a small garden maintenance company has grown into a comprehensive landscaping  design firm that can undertake domestic, residential and commercial projects. Based in Richmond upon Thames, we pride ourselves on experience, professionalism and reliability, designing, creating and maintaining beautiful gardens throughout the London area and its surroundings.

 

Initially in 1984, Stephen worked by himself, following in his father's footsteps. Combining the passion with experience, the demand for a service in the local area grew rapidly and so by 1990, Stephen needed to take on some staff. The firm expanded in 2012 to include designs with three landscaping teams and two garden maintenance teams. Since 2020, the firm delivers design-lead projects with two garden designers on board.


In 2018, Stephen started a research and development side to the company to share knowledge and experience with other landscaping firms, garden enthusiasts and horticulturists, and to contribute to the community.
 

In 2023, Petersham Gardens have a team of professionals from both the home counties and overseas with a background in design, agriculture, horticulture, landscaping, arboriculture, planning, and joinery and/or metalwork. We pride ourselves in a range of high-on-demand skills, expertise and eye for detail in the ever-changing landscape industry.

We endeavour to answer all calls. However, this is not always possible, so please leave your contact details on our answer phone and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  In many cases, we can arrange a same-day consultation service at your property during the week, Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm (until 6pm in summer).  We also offer weekend appointments that need to be booked in advance.  If you

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US...

"Highly recommend. Contacted them on a Monday and by Friday the work was done. The work was a basic garden cleanup ahead of new buyers moving in, but they did a terrific job and made the back garden look far better than I ever could have managed. Great work, great value - I'll definitely be using them again."  -  Darren Hemmings

"Stephen and his team have transformed my garden through the design. They were very professional, made the design changes I needed and listened to my needs. Their plant knowledge and conditions upon which plant would survive best really impressed me. I will ask them to do the actual design next year. A very smooth transaction, reasonable cost. I would recommend." Patricia Martin
