Whats the biggest, steepest or most unusual lawn you’ve ever worked on?

“We once had to treat a 7500m2 lawn with its own golf hole and a lake! It was very impressive.”

Are you a dog or a cat person?


Whats the best thing about your job?

“The customers. I love meeting new, interesting people and helping them get a great lawn.”

Why did you choose to specialise in lawns?

“By accident, really. We were customers of the company already because Greensleeves were treating my parent’s lawn. At the time, I didn’t know what I wanted to do for a living but I did know that I liked the idea of working for myself. When I saw the opportunity to buy a franchise, the rest is history. I now run three areas – Huddersfield, North Sheffield and Wakefield – and service over 8,000 gardens.”
