Who are Oakdean
Established in 1999 by Henri Geelhoed, Oakdean Landscapes is a multi-award-winning company based in Mitcheldean, Gloucestershire. Specialising in the transformation of outdoor landscapes, Henri has brought forth the Dutch culture for creating green, natural outdoor living environments for everyone to enjoy.
Henri studied at Frederiksoord in the Netherlands for four years, qualifying in horticulture, design and landscaping with a further year’s study in tree surgery. He worked for a number of landscapers in the Netherlands, including the foremost landscaping firm Donker, before settling in Britain where he has worked since 1998.
Inspired by the works of Donker, Henri focused on creating stunning, yet functional outdoor living spaces. In 2004 Oakdean Landscapes was presented with a gold award at Blenheim Palace Flower Show. The following year in 2005, they were awarded with a Silver-Gilt medal by The Royal Horticultural Society.
