Brown & Son was an idea conceived by Darren Brownson and his wife Nicole.
Starting as a Landscape gardener as a teenager working on both hard and soft landscaping projects he then went on to obtain over 15 years experience in the construction industry.
Specialising in heavy-duty plant machinery, Darren has worked on multiple projects all over the UK and Ireland.
Sometimes doing 14-hour days working for other companies, Darren knew that, one day, he would work for himself.
So, When the couple’s twins, Alfred and Arabella were born, Darren decided now was the time for him to branch out on his own and build a business that would allow him more flexibility to spend time with his young family.
It was only when Nicole tackled the task of hiring workmen to build a new kitchen in their home, that they realised how difficult it was to know where to start.
The couple discussed how they would love to hire a company to come in and and take care of all the details, including dealing with all the different tradesman, and get the job done.
How great would it be, they thought, to be hassle and stress-free to allow Nicole to concentrate on their two children instead.
And so, using a play on their surname…the idea for Brown & Son was born!
The couple envisaged a customer-focused, goal-orientated company that would undertake Home and Garden improvement projects.
Darren would use his contacts in the industry for trusted workmen and oversee projects, no matter how big or small, from start to finish.
Nicole would deal with the business side of things including Marketing, Accounts and Customer service.
Together, this is the company you see today.
This young family strives to give a down-to-earth approach to all their projects, working closely with customers, listening to what they want and guiding them every step of the way.
They want to offer the most professional service, that caters for all budgets.
Brown & Son pride themselves on taking the stress out of a project and making your vision, a reality!
