Located near Guildford, DR Bradbury has a family history in the landscaping sector stretching back as far as 1959. Many of your friends and neighbours may already have gardens made beautiful by our company. Specialising in landscape gardening, pond construction and light civil engineering, our team of landscaping professionals and drainage contractors can provide the skills and the experience needed to transform any property.
In this blog post, we look at some of the most famous and beautiful gardens in the Guildford and Surrey areas. We also explain how DR Bradbury can help you to place some of their landscaping characteristics into own garden space – albeit on a smaller scale, of course!
Though your Guildford landscaping theme may not have the space to contain the 30,000 varieties of plant to be found at Kew Gardens, you can certainly recreate a portion of its rich biodiversity with DR Bradbury. One of London's biggest tourist attractions, the world-famous Kew Gardens is an icon of landscape gardening.
Botanical glasshouses, lakes, ornamental buildings and breath-taking treetop walkways are the fruit of daring design work and flawless landscaping with a rich history beginning in 1759. A Bradbury family member contributed to this natural spectacle in more recent times, with the owner’s brother working as a landscaper and running an orchid nursery at the site.
Any visitor from Guildford would return from a trip to Kew feeling inspired and, with the help of DR Bradbury, your landscape gardening dreams can be realised. For example, our team of pond construction specialists can provide the facility for you to recreate Kew's beguiling aquatic garden, with its variety of water lilies, bulrushes and phragmites.
Keeping Kew's 300 acres safe from flooding and water saturation is a rigorous drainage system, and DR Bradbury's drainage contractors can ensure your own garden is similarly protected in much the same way as this popular tourist spectacle.
Loseley Park Garden
As a Guildford resident, you may have already been to local Loseley Park and the gardens. Anyone who has will be aware of its many treasures. While you may not possess the riches of Elizabeth I, who commissioned this stately home, our landscape gardening team can help you to reimagine Loseley's spectacular walled garden. Our landscaping specialists can erect fencing, construct outdoor buildings and bed plants to reflect your personal taste and style.
The White Garden is a serene, tranquil oasis and, with the work of our landscaping staff, you too can have a place to sit and reflect in your own Guildford garden. Our pond construction crew is able to install any water feature tailored to your requirements, working in conjunction with our drainage contractors who can easily integrate soakaways and systems.
Not too far from Guildford in Great Bookham, the stately home of Polesden Lacey is a National Trust property famed for its walled rose garden and highly-manicured lush lawns. However, what you may not know is that DR Bradbury has carried out the landscaping of the National Trust’s Southern Region HQ at Polesden Lacey since 1983.
To know that such a prestigious organisation trusts us with their landscape gardening requirements is a testament to our skills and workmanship. As a publicly-funded charity, the National Trust also appreciates our amazingly affordable prices.
Something of a hidden secret in the Guildford area, Ramster Gardens possesses the kind of beauty we can help you capture in your landscaping space. Located in nearby Chiddingford, we would urge you to discover its gorgeous collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias, and become inspired to embark upon new landscaping projects of your own.
The Bog Garden section of Ramster may not have the most alluring of names, but you'll be transfixed by the mammoth leaves of its gunnera plants. DR Bradbury's landscape gardening and pond construction team can provide a water feature to introduce an element of Ramster to your Guildford property, while our drainage contractors can ensure you don't end up with a literal "bog garden" of your own!
Situated 20 miles away from Guildford in Richmond-Upon-Thames, Ham House's gardens may be a fair trek but they are definitely worth the journey. We are humbled and privileged to state that DR Bradbury provides the maintenance for Ham House's landscape gardening theme. These gardens are listed at Grade II by the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England.
We have helped to restore the 17th century gardens at Ham House to their former glory and similarly, we can help you to reclaim any garden as your own through creative design and professional workmanship. From painting to paving, and from fencing to decking, DR Bradbury can complete any landscaping project in Guildford to the same standards our own illustrious clients have become so accustomed to.
