About Thyme Gardening is a reliable, professional and fully RHS qualified garden maintenance & garden design for private gardens. Based in Barley North Hertfordshire and covering North Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire & West Essex.
We offer a range of services including garden maintenance, design and planting of borders, tree and hedge planting, turfing, meadow management and enhancement, woodland management and bulb planting. We also offer full or partial garden design, soft and hard landscaping. These can be one-off services or part of a longer-term relationship whereby a garden is gradually improved over a period of years.
About Thyme Gardening specialises in designing, building and maintaining private gardens. Our aim is to transform drab, barren and overgrown gardens into vibrant, beautiful and sustainable spaces to be enjoyed by their owners. From small courtyard gardens to large country gardens
Peter attended Manea School of Gardening studying and passing level 2 RHS qualifications. He has years of gardening experience behind him and has worked as WRAGS trainee gardener at Churchill University College, Cambridge.
Peter gave up his job in business to re-train so that he could do what he loved. Peter is a retired Police Officer used to working in highly stressful environments.
I work alongside experienced and skilled local craftsmen who will assist me in implementing designs if needed.
I am absolutely passionate about garden design and upkeep of beautiful gardens.
Central to my approach is an appreciation that beautiful, low maintenance; successful gardens need to relate to their environment, the buildings and their surroundings. The clients needs and wishes are also incorporated to develop a garden that works horticulturally and aesthetically.
I work on the ethos of “Right plant, right place” and will give you colour and interest throughout the seasons. I have a superb knowledge of plants and trees and provide plants grown in this country, the majority of the time, by certified local growers ensuring the carbon footprint, which is very important to me, as is using suppliers and growers who are local.
About Thyme Gardening creates gardens that are viewed as spaces to be planted rather than areas just to be laid to hard landscaping. I can design and plant up entire gardens or just individual beds and schemes.
For larger projects, About Thyme has a network of other contractors including tree surgeons, builders and electricians for lighting.
Garden maintenance for clients who may not have enough time through a busy schedule or for those who are not experienced but want a beautiful garden or for clients who are not able to fully maintain their gardens any more due to age, disability, illness etc.,

Regular maintenance of the garden following competition – we think it is important to maintain the garden to the same high standards.
Water features – Water fascinates and captivates like no other garden feature. Its movement, reflections and sound bring an appealing mix of new sensations to a garden. Water also offers the chance to grow a different range of plants that attracts insects and other wildlife to the garden, whether you are planting up a natural pond or complementing a modern structure.
Specialist pruning of fruit trees
The best locally sourced, certified weed, pest & disease free plants and trees grown in the UK.
