Green Retreats began trading in July 2008 after Richard and Chris had been working in the industry for a total of 22 years.  During this time, they gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise and after trading successfully as a Partnership for seven years and having built up an excellent reputation, it became a Limited Company in 2015.

We are fully skilled in Paving, block paving, brickwork, fencing, decking, soft landscaping and water feature construction

Richard began landscaping as a labourer after a career in forestry.  He worked his way up to senior team leader (winning a BALI award along the way) before taking the plunge to set up Green Retreats with Dee and Chris.

As the years have progressed Richard has taken on the design role as well as construction and now heads the West sussex division of Green Retreats.

Aside from work, Richard is a family man and a keen runner.
