Inspired by the plant hunters of old and with a green fingered family history, what ever job we are doing, we work to a standard that is about integration and subtlety.


We are continually updating our knowledge base about different plant and tree species, alongside learning new methods and techniques, so that we are consistently enhancing the calibre of our performance for our customers.


Our Technical Director Simon Bunce has over 15 years professional horticultural experience, is a Member of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture and has a Foundation Science Degree in Horticulture from Bicton College (equivalent to RHS level 3). He has worked for Dartington Hall Gardens, Paignton Zoological Gardens, Buckfast Abbey, and most recently as the Head Gardener for a 5* wedding venue in a private estate. He understands the needs of gardening in grounds for the public and enjoys developing spaces organically with the owners.
