Hi, My name is Ben and I am the owner of Lifstan Trees & Landscapes..
I first started working in this industry at the age of 13, when I began a Saturday Job with another local landscaping company. I found instant gratification in this line of work as I loved being able to bring somebody’s dreams of their perfect garden to life. I enjoy creating a legacy, being a part of something that lasts for years to come and stands the test of time. During this time, I learnt the foundations 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 bloomed. I was able to learn a lot about the theoretical and practical side of horticulture, and experienced working in a variety of environments as part of my work placements. Following my studies at Writtle College, I held an array of roles within landscaping, building and groundwork, before qualifying as a tree surgeon and working for the local council. During this time, I was able to deepen my understanding of tree species, diseases and climbing, which was a steep learning curve at the time.
I then found 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 you require is, I look forward to being given the chance to create something that you'll love.
