Testimonials

Private garden in Oxfordshire

Charlie Noton came very highly recommended and has been a revelation! He has transformed my garden from a wilderness to a wonderland! The trees and flowers and hedging and topiary have been planted and maintained immaculately. Charlie is charming and creative and passionate about landscaping, he also looks a bit like Tarzan and seems to be fluent in Latin such is his knowledge of tree species.

Michael McIntyre - Comedian

Private Garden In Gloucestershire

For the past two and a half years, Charlie has been sourcing and supplying, mature and semi-mature trees for a large garden that I have designed near Cheltenham.

His advice on the large specimen trees that are existing in the garden, together with his knowledge of suitable additions for the grounds, has been invaluable. The work involved a large amount of planning, and his organisational skills are second to none. I could not have worked with anyone more helpful and conscientious. Once he was given a brief, I knew that I could totally reply on him and his team, to carry out the work to perfection. Even after a contract has been completed his follow up service is equally good.

Private Orchard in the Cotswolds

Now we have had a chance to explore the new orchard, I can certainly say we are absolutely thrilled with it.  It has been done with the greatest professionalism and care, and the result is that we have added a whole new dimension to our estate in an area which previously was a bit of a wasteland.  So in short we are delighted!

Sir Martin Smith, OBE, Private Estate Owner

Private Garden In Oxfordshire

For the past 8 months Charlie has worked with us on restocking and remodelling our garden.

Much of the planting I desired was very mature and Charlie came up trumps supplying exquisite specimens that precisely fulfilled the brief. He also brought his in depth knowledge of trees into play, recommending additional specimens that have added extra interest to our landscape.

The care he and his team took was always 1st class and he worked to a tight schedule co-ordinating with complex on site building work which caused a huge amount of disruption to the grounds. I now have the garden I always dreamed of and Charlie and his team played a big part in helping us achieve that.

Daglingworth Estate

I write to thank you very much for felling the two ash trees and the dying oak against the respective highways at Daglingworth and also for removing the ivy from Manor Farm Workshops. I am pleased with the work and it was all left in a tidy state

Charles Green, Assistant Land Steward

 

Private Garden In Oxfordshire

Charlie has been working with me for three years restoring our garden landscape in Oxfordshire. His tree and topiary specimens are second to none - absolute knock out even to the uninitiated! His advice is completely practical and he is very creative such that, in consulting, he is able to crystallise ideas and then present plans that are spectacular and deliverable. The whole experience has been a great pleasure.

Gavin McAlpine

Stavordale

Charlie has enhanced every aspect of the arboriculture at Stavordale and the care and attention that our trees receive from Charlie and his team I have not seen bettered.

Their regular visits are so obviously beneficial to the long termdevelopment of our landscape and it is such a pleasure to find a team who genuinely care about what they do.

When I am looking for new planting Charlie always comes up with the goods and usually better than I was expecting.
