Where we cover
I started my working life as a mechanical engineer which I loved. It just clicked. Ticked all the boxes for me. When my children came along, I wanted to spend more time with them so had a career break. I retrained in Horticulture in 2005 at Cannington College, and subsequently worked for Bath Council in the landscape department. It was a great insight into commercial horticulture. I then formed my own business for a few years, before joining Aspire Defence for 8 years and working as a Landscape Manager responsible for the new build on 6 garrisons in Wiltshire and Hampshire. For the last two years, I was working as a construction manager, mainly on the civils side.
I am a member of IEMA (instate of environmental managers and auditors) and was a member of the APM (association of project managers). I have a NEBOSH certificate, first aid at Work certificate, a SMSTS (site managers safety training course) and a black CSCS card. I also have experience of working with asbestos in the ground and am up to date with CDM2015.
I am passionate about Horticulture and creating beautiful spaces. I am naturally a very creative person, and paint landscapes in oils. I love creating but am also very practical, so this job suits me down to the ground.
I have over 35 years in the construction industry 20 years of those as a supervisor in civils, ground works, hard and soft landscaping. I am dedicated and committed to the work I do, whether its for myself or for another employee. I recently worked for the MJL group for the last 3 years, before this opportunity arose to set up Haigh Landscapes.
I am qualified as an SMSTS (Healthy and safety training for managers and supervisors), NVQ level 3 occupational work supervisor. CSCS Gold card, CPCS plant operators card, first aid at work, confined space training and CAT and Genny training.
I am committed to quality, and will go the extra mile to get the job done right. Client satisfaction is always high on my agenda. I also enjoy DIY and woodwork in my spare time, and pottering in the garden. I love living by the sea, whether swimming, walking along the beach or fishing.
