JC Gardens & Climbing Frames is an independent company based in Battersea, south London specialising in the design and construction of bespoke wooden climbing frames and play areas for children. 


Each climbing frame is custom made to order by hand using the finest British sustainable timbers, then carefully erected on site by our highly skilled and dedicated team.

The Company History


Head designer and founder of the company Julian Cochrane also combines his passion for plants with his design work, having spent many years working in garden design and exhibiting regularly at prestigious events such as the Chelsea Flower Show which have won him several awards over the years for his designs.


With Julian's wealth of experience and creative flair, JC Gardens can transform even the smallest of garden spaces into an exciting, innovative and magical adventure play area.

Clients include schools, local councils as well as private clients with each being offered an entirely personalised service from the initial design consultation right through to the construction and completion of the frame itself, ensuring the highest quality in all aspects of our service.

Our Environmental Policies


You won't be surprised to hear that we like trees!


Twelve years on we still maintain that we only ever use the finest responsibly sourced materials available in the construction of our products, not only because they look beautiful and will last a lifetime, but because they are kind to the environment too. The timbers we choose to use such as Pine and Oak will age beautifully too. We go out of our way to ensure that the materials we use are as local and environmentally sensitive as possible.

  "The Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) shall promote environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests...Environmentally appropriate forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest's biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes.  Socially beneficial forest management helps both local people and society at large to enjoy [the] long term benefits [of] forest resources... - FSC Mission Statement



All of our Company stationery is printed on 100% recyclcled paper.
