In the beginning there was digging. Digging out for patios and drives. Moving tonnes of soil to fill voids with hardcore, cement, paving and tarmac.
Clients were happy with the results but there was no joy to be found in just the moving of earth. Our founder, Dean, enjoyed observing the constant change and development of trees and shrubs through the seasons. Inspired by the dynamic environment of a constantly changing garden, he realised that the joy of horticulture lies in seeing plants flourish and change with the season, not to simply have plants abut a new patio or drive.
Driven to learn the true art of horticulture, Dean hit the books and became a student and studied at Kingston Maurward College and Leeds Metropolitan University, before donning his wellies to hone his skills in some of the finest gardens in Europe:
- Le Manoir aux quat Saisons employed as gardener to Raymond Blanc
- Fredensborg Palace, Denmark, gardener to the Danish Queen
- Head of gardens to the Maltese President and the Maltese Prime Minister
- Curator of the kitchen garden at The Yorke Arms, Ramsgill-in-Nidderdale
Dean established Grant Horticulture with the aim of bringing his wealth of knowledge, experience and passion together. Along with his dedicated team Dean’s mission is to provide a first-class horticultural service.
Along the way, Dean discovered the right tools to make the work not only easier but also enjoyable. That’s why today, Grant Horticulture offer the same fine gardening tools used by the team for sale directly to you. These carefully selected tools are complemented by a curated collection of accessories we know you’ll love to have in your home.
Committed to the craft of gardening, the team at Grant Horticulture are all highly skilled, qualified gardeners who are passionate about their calling, applying their love of gardening to all clients’ projects, big or small. It is this commitment to quality, individual talent and collective excellence that is the foundation on which the company is built and has resulted in Grant Horticulture being recognised as leaders in the world of horticulture.
