Company Profile

Prior to re-locating to the Isle of Wight in 2001, in search of a better overall quality of life, I had already identified the need for good trades people and feel that I can offer a wealth of some 35 years’ experience in all aspects of both horticulture & agriculture.

Setting up a business from scratch, being unknown to anyone, and in new territory, I consider myself extremely fortunate to now have my son working alongside me.

Together we have built ourselves an enviable reputation that others can only aspire to. This is due to a passion to simply do everything to the very best of our ability for all our customers alike.

As a devoted father and son team we describe ourselves as 100% committed to our business: polite, friendly, honest, trustworthy, professional and most important of all reliable, providing workmanship of the highest standard at all times.

We would now like to invite you to study our profile of what just some of our past customers have to say about us and our service.

Installed new cesspit and gardening.
Mr Burden was absolutely wonderful, he helped us through a most traumatic time installing a new cesspit and making over the garden. I have never seen anyone work so hard and get so much done above and beyond the call of duty. He really is a diamond tradesman. I would be happy to recommend them.
