Tell us about your family business (What you do, how you started, who’s involved etc)
My husband and I run our landscaping business. My mum and dad have a huge part to play too as they look after our little ones when we need them to. Aye started the business in 2009 on his own – although I probably was always involved from day 1! As the business grew I joined as a full-time member in 2012. We now have a team of 8 of us. We provide landscaping services and garden maintenance to families all over Surrey, Sussex and Greater London. We pride ourselves on delivering a top quality service from initial enquiry through to completion of the project and beyond as we help our clients to know how to best look after their new garden.
What’s your proudest moment/biggest achievement as a family business?
Our proudest moment so far is being commended as a finalist in the Association of Professional Landscapers awards 2017.
What do you love about being a family business?
The best thing about being a family business is the energy, excitement and support that you give each other. We love running new ideas past each other and also it is great to put our heads together when needing to problem-solve. Communication is the key. We also have the same core values which help make our business practices really strong.
