Welcome to Bartholomew Landscaping. We are an award-winning landscape design and build company based in London, creating uniquely tailored gardens since 1989.
We’re particularly proud of our 25 BALI awards and the two Chelsea Flower Show medals we’ve won. Our business is based on the promise that we offer a high level of support, assistance and direction during the design, planning, installation phase of a project through to completion and maintenance. Carrying out work for the most discerning clientele and focusing on residential and commercial estates and gardens.
Founded in 1989
First we listen. Our ethos of designing beautiful gardens and crafting a space that gives our clients what they truly want is where it all starts. From our initial consultation we’ll capture all your requirements and desires. We’ll inspect the garden with a photographic survey and if necessary, commission a full topographical survey.
Once we’ve discussed and agreed an outline fee structure, our talented team of landscape architects and garden designers will prepare a concept design proposal for presenting back to you. We make use of the latest technology and 3D generated models to bring your vision to life. We’ll work with you to tweak and tailor your proposal and then provide a detailed set of construction drawings, specifications and planting plans to construct the scheme.
As we specialise in build and delivery of any garden or scheme, and our principle that there’s nothing that can’t be done, we will set to work on construction. With 40 highly skilled landscape operatives and horticulturalists, our unrivalled experience allows us to deliver what you were expecting, with an unparalleled attention to detail and high standard. Our project management team coordinate our team and are adept at handling complex on-site operations.
A garden build maybe completed but it’s never finished. We can provide ongoing, award-winning garden maintenance services that ensure your vision is nurtured through to maturity. Providing the highest level of care for private gardens and public spaces covering London and the home counties.
Our experience with the Bartholomew Landscaping Team over the past six/seven months has for us been a great joy; professional yet relaxed, highly competent, accommodating and personable. What more can we say other than it has been such a pleasure. You have such a devoted team with Andy as a most efficient major general and Artur as his second in command. You are so fortunate to have such colleagues. We send our most sincere thanks and best wishes to you and all the team.
Nicholas Breach, Mayfair London
Whilst writing I do want to thank your team for their hard work and dedication throughout a challenging build. Like always theses projects take a lot out of everyone and I know first hand how hard your team have had to work to make it happen. The family are really happy with the results and I have to say that the attention to detail is faultless throughout. We can’t wait to see the planting complete.
Project Manager for Philimore Gardens
Recent feedback from the client is that they are very happy with the garden and enjoying the space more as the weather improves. I also wanted to take this opportunity to pass on my thanks to you and the team at Bartholomew Landscaping for delivering an excellent result in a professional, friendly manner that I know was appreciated by Justin and Alex. I would particularly like to thank Andy and Rohan for maintaining such high standards, and attention to detail, that certainly made my job easier and more enjoyable. I also look forward to our next collaboration
Tom Hardiment, Consultant Landscape Architect, THDesign
I wanted to write to thank you for the work that you and your company have done on my house and gardens over the past five months. From our first point of contact you have approached the work in a professional manner, with creativity in design, sensitivity to the requirements of the area and an eye for detail and quality. The team have been a pleasure to deal with and the workers on site have at all times been first rate – neat and tidy in their work and thoughtful and respectful in their approach. I would not hesitate to recommend your services and to use you again in the future.
Will Rosen, Hampstead Client
They have now finished the job and I wanted to write and thank you for the recommendation and to express my delight with the whole way they conducted the contract. At all stages they were efficient, courteous and attentive to detail. With the children and us on site during the 4 week period of the works, it could have easily been a nightmare but at no time were they intrusive; in fact they were delightful with the children and turned it into a real learning experience for them. They met the time scale agreed at the beginning of the job and the quality of the finished work is excellent.
Tess Robson, Headteacher, Tachbrook Nursery School
I would like to thank you for the amazing design and high quality of work that you and your team provided for my wife and I in the landscaping of our rear garden. Your team were at all times neat, tidy and worked hard to complete the project on time. Your continued maintenance of the garden is now bringing it to the full potential your initial design proposed.
We appointed Bartholomew to design and build the front and rear gardens to complement the Art Deco interiors of our house refurbishment after we saw a remarkable garden they had created nearby. They submitted a unique and radical proposal for our rear garden that exceeded both our house Architect’s and our expectations: Art Deco styling; Screening basement services while retaining vistas and use of the entire depth and width of the garden, Water and Fire features; Privacy from neighbouring properties without excessive shading of our property. They delivered all of this with perfect and exceptional stonework, metalwork (features, rails and gates) and planting, while managing the expectations of our Borough Council. We now have a garden that is stunning on first encounter, a pleasure to view and use throughout the year. We now employ Bartholomew to maintain this garden and two others around London. After our experience of Bartholomew, we should not wish to entrust garden design and maintenance to any other firm.
John & Bridget Maynard
We selected Bartholomew Landscaping to carry out a complete renovation of our large city patio. Bartholomew produced an innovative professional design which took into account our input. Implementation of the design was then carried out promptly and efficiently to achieve an excellent result. We have been happy to continue to employ Bartholomew whenever landscape maintenance, after-care or upgrading has been required. As clients, we have always been impressed with the commitment of Bartholomew and all its staff to provide a top-quality service. And we have been pleased to recommend them to others who have become equally satisfied clients.
From the moment that I met Barry Burrows, back in 2017, I knew I would be able to work alongside him. He had an in depth knowledge of plants and trees. Also a great eye and sense of style. His by word for a finished piece of work is "immaculate" if it is not as it should be he is the first to say. Nothing is too much trouble and this ethos runs through all his excellent employees. They have been a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
I have worked with Bartholomew for more than 10 years. They have completed numerous projects, small and large, at both of the schools I lead. They also carry out grounds maintenance on a monthly basis. Their work is of the highest calibre and their eye for design and functionality is exacting. Everyone at Bartholomew is a consummate professional, skilled, friendly and passionate about what they do. The company has built strong relationships with an extensive and wide range of other companies to help them deliver amazing projects. I cannot recommend Bartholomew highly enough.
