Grassroots Landscapes Ltd was established in 1999 by Benjamin Storey. Ben trained at Capel Manor College, and has an HND (Horticulture National Diploma) in Landscape, Design and Construction. Grassroots is a small, personable company, primarily to ensure that our clients have our full attention and knowledge from the very first enquiry to the finalisation of a project.
We pride ourselves in the fact that the majority of our work is through recommendation and word of mouth. This has meant that Grassroots' reputation has grown rapidly over the decades and is highly regarded by our clients in the local area.
We are based in Watton-at-Stone, Hertfordshire and most of our work is in the surrounding towns and villages. We offer a professional service with high quality workmanship and have full public liability insurance.
Team mugshot coming soon!
Our landscaping division consists of 3 teams headed up by Ben, Darren & Paul. Darren managed his own building firm for many years prior to joining Grassroots in 2017, offering the team a wealth of experience and skilled workmanship in brickwork, paving and rendering. Paul was previously a green keeper who moved into landscaping before joining us in 2018.
In addition, we have Terry (the oldest, but fittest!) who has worked for us for many years, and Alphie who joined us in 2019 on the maintenance team. Alphie is currently undertaking a Landscaping Course at Capel Manor College and has moved across to our landscaping team where he is gaining vital hands on experience.
We also have a Garden maintenance team of two (Simon & Jamie) who work hard all year round keeping clients' gardens looking smart and tidy. Simon, who heads up the team, has a wealth of prior gardening experience and has been with Grassroots since 2015. Jamie previously worked as a gardener for another company before he joined us in 2020.
