Who We Are
Go Wild Landscapes was conceived and is run by Andrew Marshall, (pictured here with Gardeners’ World presenter Rachel De Thame). We are a small business based in the Cotswold village of Leafield.
Andrew’s gardening passion began at an early age when he began working during school holidays in a tree and shrub nursery in the Lake District. With a degree in Biological sciences he set up his own business. This was initially in forestry contracting, gradually becoming more involved with tree surgery and gardening maintenance which lead to the establishment of Go Wild Gardening Company approximately 12 years ago.
Gaining inspiration and knowledge from working alongside widely recognised garden designers such as Robin Williams, Roddy Llewellyn and Rachel De Thame, Andrew has developed his landscaping and design skills to incorporate a wide range of design influences whilst always incorporating a natural organic element with wildlife in mind!
Our Garden Design Service
We offer a complete design and build service. Our designs are individually tailored to suit each client. Consequently we have experience of a huge range of different styles of garden from contemporary to traditional.
Our own preference is for wild gardens which will encourage wildlife – this means natural planting styles with native plants. We are passionate about plants and often, if left to our own devices, like to liven up the planting and add exotic species as well. We like to use organic materials and recycled products in the hard landscaping.
We often create gardens for people who prefer a low maintenance garden, and this is easily achievable whilst still incorporating the wild theme.
Wildlife and Environment
Our main ethos is to design, build and maintain gardens in an environmentally friendly manner, and wherever possible to enhance the environment to encourage wildlife. We employ a small band of three to four landscapers full and part time and also use several local specialist craftsmen who help Andrew put the concepts into reality.
This has developed to cover all kinds of gardening, including
- formal gardens,
- child friendly gardens and
- low maintenance gardens.
- Our speciality, though, is wildlife gardens.
