Founded in 2003, Diversity Gardens is now a collective of honest, experienced and skilled Landscape gardeners. Today, we work in teams, bringing an enthusiasm, hard-graft, a nerdy attention to detail, and strong problem-solving skills to each task we undertake.
About the owner; Sam’s horticultural career began in earnest – assisting older siblings in their family business, in and around NW London.
Relocating to live/work more centrally, he went on to further develope his skills and experience working for a prestigious landscape-company, along the way assisting and directing some fantastic projects.
The next logical step for Sam was to establish Diversity Gardens. Over the years, he has guided the business, seeing it grow and evolve into a strong provider of Landscape solutions for central London.
Additionally, although already qualified in Landscaping and Horticulture, he furthered his design knowledge, obtaining qualifications in Garden Design from Capel Manor in Regent’s Park.
Although Sam still gets hands-on with his teams, he generally now trains, directs, and oversees our landscapers, ensuring we provide each task with the care and attention required to get that ‘high-end’ finish.
Why ‘Diversity’? The name Diversity Gardens is due to Sam’s keen, albeit layman interest in science. Seeing daily the beauty of plant and animal diversity in gardens, coupled with the diverse array of tasks we carry out over the years, this gave inspiration to borrow the Scientific Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection as a theme for his Landscape company.
