Steven bowers 

Director, Garden designer and landscaper, Timber, Artificial grass

Hi there, I am Steve and I'm sure you all know me as the founder and director of the garden surgery.  I won't bore you with any in-depth details as I have included a detailed profile on the "about us" page on this very website. When the garden surgery was set up 17 years ago the ethics were simple, affordable and quality landscaping, 17 years later we are still using the same ethics. Becoming a landscape gardener was never a part of my master plan but now it is part of my life.  I enjoy the challenges that the job brings and the satisfaction of passing on the valuable skills I have learnt onto our own landscapers team. 

My own trade is joinery, There is nothing I like more then getting to grips with a pile of sleepers or decking.  In my family life I live in Shrewsbury with Emma and our little Chihuahua dog Roxy affectionately known as the office pooch, Emma Takes care of the entire office plus much more. I have two children Sasha and Evan who unfortunately are not aspiring to be the next landscapers. However Evan loves all kinds of tools and diggers so fingers crossed! You are likely to meet me or Emma at the first consultation.  I will then create your dream garden plan I will then be present throughout the building process.  I pride myself on delivering excellent customer service and a relaxed friendly approach to landscaping. From conception to completion I will be there every step of the way to deliver you the quality you deserve.

Emma Bradshaw

Office manager/Garden designer/Consultant

I have been working with the Garden Surgery for over three years. I've had a complete career change. I spent 15 years working as a social worker in Shropshire and now prefer wellies and mud. Its been life changing. My role is doing all the things Steve doesn't have time to do.....and much much more.

I am the initial point of contact for customers. I book home visits and surveys,take customer details & information. So when you call the office or email it will be me you speak to. Steve & I try to do home visits together, but often now its me flying solo. I will do the garden surveys, take photos and have the important consultations with customers.

Once I have all the planning information I need, I will go away and generate the 3D designs for customers where its required. This is the bit I enjoy. I've always had a keen interest in gardening and horticulture and feel really lucky to be able to design customers dream gardens. The computerised planning process is fantastic and will bring all our ideas together. 

Once plans are finalised, Steve does the quantity surveying for the plans then I am able to generate customer quotes. This bit can take a little longer if Steve is very busy on site. I'm training Roxy Pooch to help with this bit, she's very helpful in the office.

I manage all the pre-project planning, ensuring everything arrives on time etc and I'm on hand while projects are under construction to sort problems and keep the team in check. 

I really enjoy meeting customers and working with them throughout their projects. Seeing a garden go from a total mess to a fabulous usable garden that the customer is thrilled with is really satisfying. I look forward to meeting all future customers.
