Soft Landscaping and Planting
We install planting schemes, trees and hedges, large and small. Whether you have an established garden you would like to enhance or overhaul or a new-build property with a blank canvas; we can help. Or maybe you are looking to add some low maintenance kerb-appeal to the front of your house or screen out a view with planting?
One We can advise you on the plants that will thrive in your location and install them so you can enjoy watching them grow. We understand soil conditions and drainage and can suggest and carry out remedial action where required. Our planting team can implement existing designs, or our designers can create a new planting scheme for you. Whilst we can create elaborate herbaceous borders if you ask us to, we find that most clients have busy lives and are looking for a garden that looks good throughout the year and requires minimal upkeep or expertise. We understand how to provide colour, structure and texture to your garden throughout the year without the requirement for time-consuming upkeep or expert plant knowledge. We can offer an easy monthly care plan which will allow you to enjoy your plants for years to come.Read more
Hard landscaping and Construction
We’re not just green fingered… Our in-house hard landscape team offers a wide range of installations, from patios and decking to traditional brickwork or rag stonewalling and driveways. We have both the experience and expertise to deliver a wide range of products that cater for everything from the classic period landscape to the modern minimalist townhouse or rooftop terrace.
Gardens have become ever more hard-working, multi-functional outdoor spaces that need to accommodate elements of outdoor entertaining, cooking, lounging, playing, food-growing, storage and screening, which all have an element of hard landscaping such as patios, decks, terraces, raised planters, walls, pergolas and screens. The popularity of bi-folding doors means gardens are not only more accessible than ever, but they are also permanently on display. This requires sensitive planning and quality installations of hard surfaces, and accurate planning of levels. Our extensive knowledge of products, both traditional and cutting edge, ensures we can deliver a quality product that is right for the surroundings and expresses your individual style.Read more

“I am a chef, a restauranteur, I see myself as an obsessed perfectionist in my own world and when I work with anybody I want that to be same. I don’t want to work with people who cut corners. I don’t want to work with people who just tell me what they can do but can’t deliver it. And I think with Green Oak you get a real sense of open conversation and it works for both them and for me.”

Some Popular Questions
Do I need a garden design?
Most of our project work is design led. This makes sure you are making the most of the space and getting the best value for money. It also means that you and us are both clear on what we are delivering because there is documentation in the form of plans and visuals we have agreed on. I hope you believe us that saving on a design is false economy: The difference between most ‘DYI’ design jobs and a job that has been designed and executed accordingly is immediately apparent.The quality of your final result is in the detailing, in the way the materials are combined and the use of a consistent visual language throughout the project. And that is without considering the solutions a good design can bring to your space that you wouldn’t have thought of. Landscaping isn’t like a few cushions that you can replace if you don’t like them, it’s something you will live with for many years and that can either give you joy every time you look at it or it can be the cause of regret. We like to deliver joy! ... however for very straight forward pieces of work a design may not be required. Talk to us and we will give you an honest answer.
Why use a design and build contractor?The good thing about our team is that we know that whatever we design can be built and accurately translated onto the site and within the agreed budget. During the design process, our wider team are also involved in consideration for construction methods and on-site logistics. We understand there is nothing worse than a vision that can’t be delivered. For you, it also means that there is one point of contact and that all the responsibility rests with us. There is no finger pointing between 3rd party designers or subcontractors when a nimble and coordinated approach is required, especially when there are changes or if unexpected situations arise during the project’s construction phase.
Are your team qualified?Definitely! Staff development is a fundamental part of our commitment to provide a first-class service. We have an enthusiastic and talented team each specialising in different elements of the outdoor sector. All our staff our DBS checked for peace of mind and safety.
Do I need to be at home during the works?aWe endeavour to cause minimal disruption to our customers' personal lives while we undertake any project work. As long as we have access to the area and an outside tap and electric supply, that’s all we need.… although we never say no to a cup of tea!
Can I see some of your previous workBe our guest.….we have a show garden located at Corker Outdoor Living in Paddock Wood, or we can arrange for you to visit either one of our ongoing projects, or one that has been recently completed.
Are you insured and what safeguards do I have?We are fully insured, as we are approved contractors for both the public and private sectors. We have cover for up to 10 million pounds. All of our work is undertaken under a set of terms and conditions that protect both the client and contractor. For larger projects, we set up a staged payment contract setting out milestones for payments. We also have a voluntary customer charter an example of which we send with quotations, and as members of BALI and other industry bodies, we adhere to the highest standards of service to our customers.
