About Shire Landscapes

At 17 I started work with a landscaping company as a laborer. Throughout my 5 years working for this company I learnt skills in hard/soft landscaping becoming a valued member of the team helping to create large gardens worth up to 50k. Such projects include Full redesign and landscape, Driveways and taking on sub contracting work from Builders for large paving projects.

From there I moved to a construction and Civil Engineering company learning new skills in the construction trade and improving on the skills I had developed in my previous job. Throughout my time here I have perfected my skills in my previous job and have learnt great deal more.

Most of the work received was from Council projects re-generating areas within the towns around the county, mostly improving roads, foot paths and groundwork's for new builds.
