An Employee-Owned Garden Maintenance Company.

Oaklands was established in 1990 (later incorporated as Oaklands Landscaping Ltd), looking after a handful of gardens in Chesham and the surrounding area. 

Over the years the business has grown, usually through recommendation, and we now regularly maintain more than 250 gardens of all sizes.

The size of the business may have changed, but its original principles and aims have not and Oaklands still prides itself on its reputation for providing a high-quality, reliable and personal horticultural service to all its clients. The demand for a high-end, reliable maintenance service is still apparent and 99% of our work is now regular maintenance.

This is achieved by employing exceptional gardeners and horticulturalists and investing heavily in our team. We operate from a well-equipped and staffed commercial unit HQ, a rural depot and our own recycling facility. A fleet of modern vans and multiple teams operating daily throughout the year.

Our customers have often used gardeners before, but are looking for that next step up in quality or the move to a company with an unrivaled infrastructure locally. We also offer consultancy and training for properties with full-time gardeners or can attend occasionally to address technical tasks.

In November 2019, Oaklands became 100% owned by its employees and the Employee Ownership Trust was established.

PLEASE NOTE. UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE UNABLE TO TAKE ON ANY ADDITIONAL GARDENS AT THIS TIME. Finding or training staff to the level we operate at remains our toughest challenge. As with many industries we are not filling our vacancies. The full effects of this will last for some time as we have no additional staff in training and therefore no scope to take on additional gardens. Our only windows for more work are when existing customers move away etc.

Note: We have introduced additional measures during the Coronavirus outbreak. http://oaklandsgardens.co.uk/additional-measures/
