Richard discovered a passion for horticulture and working outdoors at an early age. He dedicated himself to full-time education, completing a Higher National Diploma in Horticulture and Landscape Construction.
Richard became fascinated with the relationship between elements of construction and soft landscaping. Once Richard completed his Higher National Diploma, he worked as a self-employed landscaper briefly before setting up Landscape Associates Ltd in 2001. Richards’s ethos and passion for constructing gardens has driven the company to earn industry recognition and a reputation for professionalism and outstanding quality. In January 2017 Richard graduated from studying his RHS Master of Horticulture.
