Planet 14 Landscapes - Thom
Thom
Managing Director

Thom was born in Essex on the family farm where his love of being outside began. After travelling to Australia and New Zealand he studied an ND and HND in Agriculture at Writtle College.

Whilst at Writtle, Thom developed his passion for Landscaping. He set his heart on developing a company that enthuses passion and professionalism in all areas of the landscaping industry. For him building a personal relationship with the client in any sector, is key to delivering a quality job with great attention to detail.

Away from work, Thom and his wife Jo enjoy spending time with their combined family of four children and dogs doing even more outside stuff!
