The Story So Far!
Having qualified as an agricultural engineer at Rycotewood College I joined Exxon where I worked on huge marine diesel engines. But I also learnt how large corporations worked and I eventually realised that corporate life wasn’t for me. I left Exxon and went to South Africa where I became a commercial pilot and flew light aircraft for three years.
I subsequently returned to the UK and, in 1995, I did something which was to transform my life – I bought a tractor! I started a horse paddock maintenance business and this led me to countryside stewardship. I have never looked back and have continued enjoying practical land management. In 2016, I thought that it was time to share my knowledge. I now offer both land management and consultancy services.
In 2016 I was accepted as a Member of the British Institute of Agricultural Consultants (MBIAC), a body which recognises and promotes agricultural consultants.
I use my 20 years’ practical experience in habitat creation and land management to help land and estate owners to make the most of their land. I offer a bespoke service and my clients deal directly with me. My service ensures continuity in planning and delivery and I aim to save you time, to give you the freedom to enjoy your land and to maximise the benefits of land ownership for you.
My experience encompasses:
Hedge laying, planting and management
Establishing and maintaining wetlands
Tree risk assessment
Water and drinking systems
Wildflower meadow creation and management
Game cover establishment
With my help you can spend quality time enjoying your land rather than worrying about it or maintaining it. You will be able to ride, shoot and walk the dog more often whilst taking great pride in your surroundings.
