As a fresh faced, young, innocent lad, I applied to the Royal Horticultural Society to become a trainee on their two-year course at RHS Wisley Garden. I was accepted and along with nine others, I commenced my training.
I specialised in fine turf at Wisley and covered all aspects of turf culture. I was awarded the RHS Wisley Certificate and continued to work in Surrey as a gardener/groundsman working for various landscape companies.
I moved back to Somerset to become head gardener on a private estate, where I stayed for several years maintaining vegetable gardens, fruit, lawns, beds and borders. I again went freelance several years ago and have continued to specialise in maintaining domestic lawns and gardens in Somerset including the beautiful garden at Kilver Court in Shepton Mallett.
Over my horticultural career I have renovated/maintained croquet lawns, putting greens, cricket squares, bowling greens and many fine lawns.
More recently I have taken courses with The Institute Of Groundsmanship.
The lawn links everything together in the garden...the patio to the beds... the beds to the pond...the vegetable garden to the greenhouse. Without the lawn, your garden would consist of a series of beds in a muddy patch. The lawn ties everything together, making the garden complete, so why not nurture it.
We're a small team and we pride ourselves on providing a professional, polite, friendly, efficient service. I'm extremely proud that we're independent........it gives us more freedom to do what's right for you........ and your lawn.
We have all the necessary tools, machinery and equipment for all sizes of jobs, private and commercial.
If you think that we may be able to help you, please contact me for a chat.
