Delve deeper into Theresa's inspiring journey as she shares her story…

The seed of my business idea sprouted from my deep love for growing plants, nurtured during my time in greenhouse plant production. As I delved into ornamental horticulture, my passion blossomed, leading me to embark on the journey of self-employment.

A pivotal moment in my entrepreneurial odyssey came when I realized a misalignment between my work and personal fulfillment. Embracing change, both subtle and profound, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery, realigning my priorities and aspirations to rediscover the joy in my endeavours.

Among the milestones that fill me with pride is the recurring trust bestowed upon me by past clients. Their return signifies not just a job well done, but a relationship built on mutual respect and satisfaction.

My ultimate aspiration is to leave behind a verdant legacy—a landscape thriving with lush greenery that offers beauty, biodiversity, and sustenance for ourselves and wildlife. Collaborating with others, I strive to cultivate green spaces in a conscientious, respectful manner, honouring our planet and its delicate ecosystems.
