Hi Ian here
With my wife Jenny we live in a lovely part of Nottinghamshire, but moved to here from where we were both born and brought up from in Sussex.
I have been managing fineturf soon after I left school which was about 36 years ago now, apart from a brief spell where I was a YTS apprentice straight from school
For 25 years I was a greenkeeper on golf courses and throughout my career I gained numerous vocational qualifications along the way, the pinnacle of which was a 'Degree in Fineturf management' I attained as a very mature student. With all of my work experience and qualifications that I have gained, it possibly makes me the highest qualified and experienced lawn care expert in my region.
We own and manage 2 lawn care franchises in the East Midlands, we cover all of Nottinghamshire and big areas of Lincolnshire as well. We have been operating for over 10 years now, and have built a customer base full of lovely people who are now really happy with their lawns. We have expanded really well and have 2 guys who work for us as well, the entire team get on exceptionally well.
We are also passionate about nature and the environment, having met many years ago while we were both carrying out volunteer conservation work for the national Trust. Because of this I am always looking to promote wildlife, nature and the benefits of the great outdoors as much as possible. We are now Corporate Sponsors for Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, an initiative we are extremely proud of.
