Currently the company operates as a core of 10 full time staff; we also have part-time and seasonal. We have 5 vans on the road around the Belfast, North Down and South Antrim areas all in our distinctive bright red sign written Ford Transits.
We are based on the hills high up behind the North Down town of Holywood. We bought our premises here 16 years ago and established our landscape yard, nursery and offices here to accommodate our growing company. This location allows us fast access to Greater Belfast, North Down and beyond. Our sister company Construction & Landscape Training Ltd share & compliment our service to the land based sector.
Our staff operates as a team of landscape professionals. The company is kept ahead of the pack by a determination to maintain a modern approach to landscaping in all its work – be this through new techniques, materials or machinery. We have learnt a lot from the past and hopefully are now in a position to build on those original techniques.
Gareth & Sarah Dalzell run the company. Gareth a graduate landscaper started the company in 1990. Gareth was the youngest ever chairman of ALCI – The Assoc of Landscape Contractors of Ireland, Gareth remains passionate about his subject. Sarah has an HND in The Built Environment with IT and is an incorporated member of the Chartered Institute of Builders.
Trained staff and staff training are right at the top of our list of priorities. Every single member of the team receives training throughout his or her time with us as well as training needs assessment. This ensures we operate with safe and knowledgeable staff.
Our commitment to an efficient work systems extends to our machinery and equipment. We have invested strongly in sensible and practical solutions to all work operations. We run modern Ford Transit vans, Kubota groundcare machinery including the latest commercial grass cutting machines and an up to date range of general and specialist smaller plant for every other operation. Early on we realised that the right machine is the key to cost effective work practice. So we always make sure our machines are the most efficient and effective available.
For example when grass cutting we can handle everything from a normal domestic lawn, a tennis court right through to a wild flower meadow once a year. Rotary, cylinder, reciprocating or line cutter, pedestrian to low ground pressure compact tractor. We could also spike and scarify it and then remove, roll it up and relay it some where else with our turf lifting machine.
How we operate
We offer these services to a wide range of private and commercial customers alike.
