James Sharp originally started Kent Gardening in 2011 with the ambition to provide a quality gardening service to the local area where he lived. Around the same time his father was coming into retirement and closing down his gardening firm. This allowed James to have an establish clientele from which to start the business from day one and many of these clients are still with us today.
As our services diversified, Kent Gardening grew and became Kent Gardening & Tree Surgery with the business becoming formally incorporated in April 2017.
