Hi, My name is Ben and I am the owner of Lifstan Trees & Landscapes..
I first started working in the industry at the age of 13 when I got a Saturday Job with another local Landscaping company. I found instant gratification in this type of work as I loved being able to bring someone's dreams of their perfect garden to life and being a part of something that would last for years to come and stand the test of time. Here I got a foundation in all aspects of landscaping from Patios and Ponds to Planting schemes and Pergolas.
After leaving school I attended Writtle College where my passion for Trees and Landscapes was developed even further. I was able to learn a lot about the theoretical and practical side of the work and work within a range of environments as part of work placements.
After leaving Writtle I then worked within a range of jobs within Landscaping, Building and Groundwork before qualifying as a Tree Surgeon and working for the local council. I was able to deepen my understanding of tree species, diseases and climbing them which was a steep learning curve for me at the time.
I then founded my own business and began to do the work I love every day, being responsible for creating beautiful landscapes and pruning trees, I take pride in every aspect of my work and am always prompt, efficient and polite. No matter what the job your require is, I look forward to being given the chance to create something that you'll love.
