"Lady Penelope shortlisted for Horticulture Week’s Custodian Awards 2018” – winners announced on 27th June
Estates and Gardens
We are proud to care for many privately-owned country house gardens across three counties of West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire which we maintain, manage and offer continuing advice on their ongoing development. Many of these private garden owners have been using our service since we established in 2008, and we look forward to welcoming more fine gardens into the Lady Penelope family as we continue to expand.
We now also provide a landscape scale service of maintenance and management to private single and multiple residency country estates. Many of the skills needed to care for our estate clients have been transferable from our existing gardens team as all the estates that we maintain have a large gardening and horticulture element.
Where it has been needed to provide a wider offering beyond gardening and horticulture, we have either trained our existing staff or recruited the specialist and essential skills that they demand. We now employ specialists as part of our team in tree surgery, forestry and woodland management, including planting of new woodland, groundsmanship including the management of grassland sward, natural meadow habitats, pond maintenance and restoration.
