Greenfields Garden Services was established in 1988 by Chris Snell, comprising of one push along mower, a few hand tools and a small van. Over the years the company expanded and in 1998 became a limited company with a turnover of circa £3million. However, this has not changed the ethos of the company which is still run with a ‘hands on’ approach by Chris Snell owner/managing director.
Greenfields has gained accreditation from CHAS, Exor, Constructionline, SAFEcontractor and British Association of Landscape Gardeners.
The company is organised into the following five departments, each having its own management team yet all remaining closely co-ordinated.
- Play Areas and School Works
- Tree Surgery
- Grounds Maintenance
