Ben Lannoy graduated from the prestigious Central St Martins School of Art in 2005 with a foundation in Spatial design and a BA in Theatre design. He then went on to study at Painshill Parks Garden Design School where he was taught by world renowned garden designers Robin Templar Williams and Moira Farnham.
Ben started off his landscaping career working for an established landscape maintenance company that also owned a florist and he quickly became a flower arranging guru. Not something he would tell his friends! This is where his passion for plants evolved.
As part of the company he worked on high end commercial contracts such as Mercedes World at Brooklands, Porsche showrooms in Guildford and Wentworth Golf Club on the Wentworth Estate along with numerous exterior landscaping contracts. This helped him gain an unmatchable attention to detail which he believes he carried on through his own company in every aspect.
He then started up his own successful garden maintenance and interior plant displays company in 2007 working as the interior landscaper for Moët Hennessey, London, high end residential and commercial properties and various TV contracts. He later sold the business to concentrate on his skills as a garden designer for an established landscape company with over 20 years in the industry. He has worked on a whole range of projects within the industry from landscapes for big budget TV shows to designing and maintaining gardens for a needy neighbour! He is passionate about plants, supporting nature whenever possible and will always make sure he leaves a project with a happy customer and his reputation intact.
Greg started his gardening career in 2010, carrying out maintenance work on small domestic properties. Since joining Ben Lannoy Landscapes in 2013, he has gained valuable experience working on projects of a much larger scale.
With a creative background – currently undertaking a diploma in garden design at KLC school of Design and having previously trained as a multimedia journalist – Greg quickly became a valued member of the team. Always prepared to put in the extra hours, he is now seen as Ben’s Right Hand Man. Acting as the garden maintenance manager and of all things logistical, it is his job to ensure every client receives the attention they deserve.
Greg’s natural flair for design allows him to visualise even the most neglected of garden’s potential and his plant care knowledge ensures he is able to carry out the steps to achieve this.
Greg often uses his writing and photography skills to update the company’s blog and social media accounts. Greg’s horticultural writing can frequently be found in local lifestyle magazines such as Life in Haslemere and Life in Farnham.
He has high levels of interest in planting design and is a regular visitor to national gardens all over the country such as Kew gardens and RHS Wisley. It is visits to such gardens where he often takes inspiration for projects for Ben Lannoy Landscapes.
Having worked for over 6 years as a hard landscaper, Bobby has grown up in the landscaping industry and has already worked for one of the most prestigious landscape design companies in the country. Bobby has expertise in building retaining walls, rendered walls, laying patios, constructing decking, all types of fencing and much much more.
