About Us

The Country Life Landscapes is run as a family business, by Oliver Reynolds partnered by his father, Ivan with his mother Jane, who runs the office and Michelle, his wife, assisting part time, covering all aspects of garden design and construction as well as providing a service to its customers in all aspects of garden maintenance.

We believe we are a friendly group of hard working, competitive people who can give you the service required in building or maintaining your garden in such a way that you would be happy to pass on our name to friends and family, as word of mouth and local advertising is how we have developed over the years to be where we are today, happy and busy.

The Partners

Oliver started The Country Life Landscapes on his own with one vehicle and a few tools about 6 years ago. The name Country Life was an original family company name started some 30 years before as was the logo of the cottage which can be found on all of the companies paperwork.

Now partnered by his father and with mother Jane running the office ably assisted by Michelle, Olivers wife, in a part time capacity the company continues to grow year by year employing the rogues gallery above with the numbers expanding over the busy months of spring and summer


Having moved to France to restore their 400 year old farmhouse and to create a 2 acre cottage garden some 10 years before, it was time to return to Suffolk and that was the start of the partnership of father and son some 3 years ago. Having gardened for a number of ex clients [Mr McGregors was the name of their guest house] and having returned on numerous occasions to help his son with various gardening projects here in Suffolk it seemed a good idea to become partners and the rest is history.
