Gardens & Grounds

The Complete Gardening Service


Gardens & Grounds cares for an extensive portfolio of gardens in the south lakes area. It was established in 2001 by Dr. Richard Woodburn who has, amongst other qualifications, a first class honours degree from the University of Wales and is a Doctor of Biology from the University of Oxford . He has worked as a professional for ICI, University of Cardiff, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, University of Oxford, The British Trust for Ornithology and University of Sheffield. Through founding Gardens & Grounds, Richard has realised a dream by pursuing his passion for hands-on horticulture in an area of outstanding natural beauty. You can read more about Richard and the early days of Gardens & Grounds in an article written by Cumbria Life magazine on this website.
