A Brief History of Our Company…
We first started back in the early 70s with a Nottinghamshire family. Margaret Joan Garland and her husband Thomas Edward were both very keen gardeners, and between them both over the next few years, they developed the business that we have here today.
They were both interested in the history of gardens and how gardens and garden designs had developed over the years; from informal and formal gardens and cottage gardens, right up to today when the next generation of the family are producing Eco Gardens for the 21st century.
Whilst Margaret was busy bringing up their only son Anthony, Thomas had built up a very busy little gardening business tending to other peoples gardens. Along with planting, grass cutting, pruning, and also complete garden make overs from scratch, he developed the design side of the business, and offered a domestic garden maintenance service as well as a commercial ground maintenance service.
By 1973, the business was growing quite rapidly. They believed in the old fashioned values of customer care throughout, and offering a premium service with quality materials and a caring work force. Their motto throughout was “who cares wins”.
Their only son Anthony came into the business much later, studying Garden Design at Trent University Brackenhurst, although the business still employs a garden designer today on the Design and Horticultural side, continuing with those old fashioned values today. And the rest, as they say, is History.
