I have always loved gardening, the outdoors and the countryside. As a boy I spent many happy hours in the garden with my grandparents pruning, weeding and generally helping. After university I studied and practised as a chartered surveyor for many years, concentrating on property development and management.

In 2001 I established Cornerstone, initially retailing garden stoneware and products. But by 2002 I had become heavily involved in the ‘doing’ side of the business. From these roots Cornerstone has become established as a busy and successful garden design and construction company. Our projects range from very small to large, simple to complex. Our mission statement is “for glorious gardens and perfect ponds” and we aim to achieve a professional service at an affordable price.

The cornerstone team working on a garden

But they can roll and trim the lawns and sift the sand and loam,
For the glory of the garden occupieth all who come
