Having graduated from Harper Adams University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Leisure Tourism, Tom moved on to develop his skills in historic property restoration and construction. Despite being highly satisfying, coming from a farming background he wanted to return to land care. Developing a landscape and forestry business utilised many aspects of his degree and gave him the opportunity to make the most of his experience.
Tom particularly enjoys client interaction and is passionate about offering advice and ideas, providing inspiration and alternatives from the norm. He is usually the first point of contact for our clients, and if not actually working on site he will make regular visits to ensure continuity of quality.
When not on site or at Eco HQ, Tom enjoys racing cars and spent several years as part of the Radical Sports Car team where he was heavily involved with the research and development, enabling him to travel around Europe as part of the race team.
Following a long line of family members, (including his Grandfather John Bosley!) James joined the racing world as an amateur jockey. While loving the camaraderie and competitive nature of an amazing industry, after 12 years and over 100 winners he recognised that his love lay with the land and returned to his farming roots.
It seemed a natural progression to team up with brother Tom and old family friend Keith to start a landscape and forestry company.
Having been short-listed by JETS (Jockeys Employment Training Scheme) for the Richard Davies Achievement Award, James’ case features in their promotional material and website as an example of a successful business.
James heads up our on-site team and is the daily contact with our clients, ensuring tidiness, continuity and that time-scales and deadlines are met.
Keith brings a wealth of experience and horticultural knowledge to Eco’s garden design, landscaping and maintenance. His love of plants has been strongly influenced by travel, specifically in Europe, California, New York, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. Keith is particularly inspired by English country homes, including properties such as Lechlade Mill, a listed water mill set in 8 acres, and says that his innate passion for design and landscaping has been inherited from his family.
Having worked on a range of projects in the UK, Keth understands the necessity of treating each project individually, responding to the qualities and unique character of each space. He likes to incorporate an interest for innovative design and technical ability in a variety of projects, both as a director of Ecological Landscape and also in previous roles at leading international landscape companies.
Heading up the design, landscaping and maintenance teams Keith has a key role in customer communication, keeping the projects to schedule and ensuring the quality is maintained.
When not designing gardens, cycling, running, photography and travel are high on Keith’s priority list!
