Profile Outline

I have 25 years of experience in creating and maintaining beautiful, bio-diverse chalkstream habitats. I have taken near derelict streams from a state of utter neglect and created wonderfully complex aquatic eco-systems.

I combine modern thinking with traditional materials and try to ensure that willdlife benefits from every intervention. The chlakstreams are wonderful fisheries and I always try to balance my 'habitat first' approach with the requirements of the fishery.

To achieve my ends, I use my skills with chainsaws, diggers and dumpers as well as the more artisanal work with hazel faggots and willow spiling.

I believe in managing for invertebrates. This forces us to think of plants first. The rest follows from there.

I also carry out a broader range of estate management tasks such as fencing, tree and ground works.

Working with a garden designer friend, I can also offer garden design, creation and maintenance alongside pond design, installation and maintenance.
