2005-2006: - Local Driveway Company: - After my time at college I was lucky enough to be offered a full time job with a local Driveway company Enjoyed my time there and learned a lot. We mainly specialised in mono-blocking as well as paving.
2006-2008: - Floors Castle Garden Centre Landscaping:- After being made redundant due to seasonal lack off work, i moved onto another full time job at Floors. Learned lot at the company which carried out all garden related work. Really enjoyed it and worked with a great team. Became a squad foreman before being made redundant when the company closed. With the lack of jobs at this time I felt I had the experience necessary to start out in business my self and as they say "the rest is history".
