Industry experience: David completed his degree with aspirations for a career in habitat management. His voluntary work with Natural England helping maintain some large National  Nature Reserves through Herefordshire and Worcestershire followed by a seasonal contract with his local council as a Ranger caring for Local Nature Reserves on his doorstep conformed his aspirations for outdoor work. Followed by working  for an established tree surgery and grounds maintenance company in Birmingham he started to develop his own business in 2007 on weekends, he worked closely with this company and became one of their main sub contractors for grounds maintenance. This business has since flourished and developed into the established company it is today.

David’s main passion is regular care and maintenance of established gardens and being able to provide a prompt and efficient service on site with his team.

Outside of work David used to take part in long distance cycling events, sometimes touring some 150+ miles round Wales and back in a day. He also played guitar in a band with his friends.
