About Us

Copper Beech Play & Copper Beech Natural Playgrounds are trading names of Copper Beech Garden Design Ltd.

We are a family run business based in Herefordshire with over 15 years experience of making beautiful gardens, playgrounds and play feature from natural and reclaimed materials.

Jim and Helen Morris-Ridout set up the company with the aim of providing a landscaping service that is of the highest quality while also considering the impact of their work on the environment.

In 2004, whilst also running Copper Beech, Jim and Helen were awarded the Schumacher Award for their work founding Unity Garden, a community garden project in Hereford. The project came about as an extension of their belief that our natural environment is a great resource for playing, learning, and relaxation.

By having such dedication to providing a high quality and ethical company, Jim and Helen have been able to refine the service they provide, products and materials they use and also attract the best craftsmen around.

Copper Beech do not believe in charging the earth for the high quality service they provide, the company works in an increasingly competitive market, their clients will verify time and again that a Copper Beech job is money well spent.

If you have a project in mind Jim will be happy to talk to you about it. Please contact by phone or email. If you would like to arrange a site visit this service is free of charge.

As part of the initial consultation Jim will often produce sketches and a fully itemised estimate for any work you may be interested in having Copper Beech undertake. Throughout this process you are under no obligation to employ Copper Beech services.
