My name is Richard Everett and I have been working in horticulture for over 35 years. I am based in Box Hill, a short distance away from Tadworth. My convenient location allows me to undertake landscaping and garden maintenance work throughout all parts of Surrey and West Sussex. I am highly experienced, hardworking and particularly adept in serving the commercial sector by helping with their gardening and grounds maintenance requirements.
When first starting out, I spent three years learning my trade at the highly acclaimed Merrist Wood Agricultural and Horticultural College in Surrey. It was here that my passion for landscaping began to take shape and after finishing at Merrist Wood, I moved on to Wisley to begin my training with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). It is here that I refined the skills that have served me so well for nearly four decades.
After completing my training at Wisley, I spent many years working as a nursery stock production manager. My role at a local nursery saw me grow and nurture many thousands of plants, shrubs, alpines, bedding plants and trees. It was a role that I enjoyed until 1999 when I finally decided to venture into the world of self-employment. It is a decision that I’m very glad to have made.
Specialising in landscaping, grounds maintenance and garden maintenance, I have used the skills I have learned to assist my many customers in Surrey and West Sussex. It seems that these skills are in increasingly short supply and many other landscaping companies know very little about the planting side of garden maintenance. This is an area where both my business and I genuinely excel.
My services cover all aspects of domestic and commercial garden and grounds maintenance. This includes grass cutting, edging, weed control, moss control, border maintenance, weeding and pruning as required. I also undertake pond maintenance work, prune shrubs and trees, tend to climbing plants, clear leaves and keep gardens and grounds in good order. I can also offer advice on your garden design, replanting and soft landscaping requirements.
