Richard Key Landscape Design

Need a helping hand when it comes to zhuzhing up your jardin? Expert garden designer Richard Key can help transform even the most woeful patch into a stylish outdoor space.

If lockdown has taught us anything, it’s that the garden is the most important part of our homes – and fortuitously Richard Key knows how to make your green space gorgeous.

A fellow of the Society of Garden Designers and a published author, Richard has over 30 years’ experience in the garden design biz and brings jardin dreams to life in his Buckinghamshire-based design studio. Whether you have a bijou cottage garden or a rolling country estate, he has all the know-how to create the perfect outdoor space. Private gardens aren’t just his forte, either – he’s worked on some excellent hotel gardens, including The Oxford Belfry just outside Thame.

It’s not all about getting the right flowers and plants (although if you’re less green-fingered and more all thumbs, Richard is your man). The design service includes everything from terraces and pathways to features and outdoor living spaces – so if you’re more a patio cocktail-sipper than a flowerbed waterer, your new garden will suit you down to, well, the ground. Got dogs or sprogs? He can co-ordinate a non-toxic plant scheme with a focus on a safe place to play.

And once you have your dream garden all set up,  Richard’s other business, Key Gardencare, will help you maintain its magnificence, whether you want a regular weekly service or just an ad-hoc consultation . Well, if it’s good enough for Hedsor House, it’s good enough for our little patch!
