About One of Spades

I attended Reaseheath College in 2003 and gained a BTEC in Garden Design while setting up my own landscaping business. Initially taking on small projects for property developers my business grew as did my skill set. Between 2003 and 2005 I collaborated on medal winning gardens at the Tatton Flower Show before moving into aquatics and pond design. My largest single project was a woodland conversion in Caldy with a budget in excess of 150k other sizable projects include Corbar House in Buxton (pond and site landscaping) as well as a woodland management contract in Boddwenni, Mid Wales.

Since then I have split my time between writing, garden landscaping and property maintenance for several large landlords and property agents in the South of Manchester.
