Company Director & Project Manager
Jude is our Project Manager and the founder of Greengage. After 8 years experience working in the outdoor industry, she set up her own gardening and landscaping business in February 2015. Her qualifications in Level 2 and 3 RHS Practical Horticulture and her experience give the perfect mix of plant knowledge and landscaping skills. She has built the business up over the years and delivers outstanding projects with her incredible team.
Company Secretary & Office Manager
Jennie is the Office Manager for the business. She is your first point of contact as a client and manages correspondence, invoicing, accounts, the website and social media and so much more. In addition you may see her on site, taking photos, monitoring health and safety or just dropping off biscuits!
Paul is a very well regarded member of our team and a firm client favourite. He has several years of experience building, landscaping and gardening alongside his other passion, food. Paul was an esteemed head chef for several years until we commandeered him into a more family oriented ‘9-5’ role.
Overall, he is an excellent landscaper that we are incredibly lucky to have on our team. He brings energy and enthusiasm onsite and is a much valued member of the team.
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have hired Jack. He has a wealth of landscaping and gardening experience. He is very experienced with plant machinery, having worked with both tractors and diggers. Jack has worked at a local cider farm so is an experienced pruner and chainsaw operator. His last job was with another landscape gardening company, so he brings a great mix of skills and experience.
Jack has also trained as a blacksmith which means he is a confident welder and he can even be persuaded to make bespoke garden pieces. In addition he has a wealth of related qualifications ranging from first aid, health and safety to pesticide application and is a real asset to the business.
I’ve tried very hard not to make the ‘Jack of all trades’ joke, particularly as he’s mastered them all but I can’t, we’re very happy to be working with someone with such a range of experience.
Simon is a vital and supportive part of our team. He is very logical with good attention to detail with has a strong portfolio of stunning building / landscaping work. He currently works part time for us whilst maintaining a consultancy role in his own business. Simon is very practical, he is currently building a very large extension on his house mostly single handedly!
Kate Carr is a Somerset-based Garden Designer. She is passionate about helping people enrich their lives through their gardens. Since qualifying in 2010, Kate has continued to hone her expertise as a Gardener, Project Manager and Designer. She has worked on projects from intimate city courtyards to large rural estates. She is part of an all-female team of international designers that have been consistently selected by designer Jo Thompson, for over-seeing and carrying out the planting element of numerous (often Gold-medal) award-winning show gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Kate loves creatively working with natural hard landscaping materials that are (whenever possible) recycled or reclaimed. This combines with a naturalistic and wildlife-supporting planting palette.
Kate prides herself on taking time to truly understand the people she represents, working sensitively with their property, its footprint and the surrounding landscape. She develops 3D visualisations and scale drawings that can be accurately translated onto the ground and brought to life by the Greengage Landscaping Team.

She is also a RHS Silver-Gilt winner. Sally trained with esteemed garden designer John Brookes. She has designed all types of gardens from small town gardens to larger rural sites.
Finn was our full time landscaper for three years before moving to Scotland to be with family at the start of the Pandemic. He now has his own gardening and landscaping business, something we are incredibly proud to have helped him on his way with. We miss him, but fortunately he manages to do several regular working holidays back in Somerset where he brings his experience and talent to our projects.
