Clive's Story

We are passionate at what we do

From a young age Clive was a keen gardener assisting his mother as well as gardening for neighbours to earn extra pocket money.

When Clive got older and had his own garden his love for gardening just grew. As well as raising vegetable crops from seed, he loved growing flowers as well. He also used to create hanging baskets and tubs for home, friends and family. A large section of Clive’s garden is dedicated to Dahlias where he grows about 50 different varieties. In later life when a career change was required Clive decided to turn his favourite hobby into a business.

Since launching Clive’s Gardening Services, he is proud to have built a round of regular clients plus fitting in ad hoc clients where his schedule allows.

CGS thank all our clients for their custom in 2019 and look forward to gardening for them and new clients in 2020.

2018
In 2018  Clive embarked on a new career. He decided to pursue his love of gardening by offering gardening maintenance services. After servicing and refurbishing cars for the past 11 years he soon found himself enjoying servicing  petrol mowers he had purchased for his business.

 

2019

As the sourcing of equipment progressed Clive discovered classic mowers made by a well known company called Ransomes, Sims & Jefferies Ltd of Ipswich.

Clive realised that the Ransome lawnmower was a trusted and favoured brand and decided to offer used walk behind petrol mower sales as part of the business.  

As more ideas developed Clive engaged with a local company called Redbrock Creative for branding, web design and marketing.

Finally Clive’s Gardening Services or CGS  had to purchase a van then we would be ready for business..
