10 Jul Chris Bean turns 15!
He started with us as a Care Team Leader in 2003 – and he’s still doing that today and loving it because he loves being a gardener – and has been for 47 years!
Chris originally trained as a gardener for an Elizabethan period garden back in England – and back then everything was trimmed, mowed and swept by hand – there weren’t any tools like weed eaters!
Having a work ethic that sets a high standard for all of us, Chris looks after many of our high-end residential gardens from Whitford to Parnell. The friendliness of the staff is one of the reasons why he has stayed with the company Chris says.
“There’s a really good rapport in the company and I always look forward to going to work,” Chris says.
“I always try to share my knowledge and share my advice – with the team I work with as well as our clients.”
Chris also says a lot has changed in the last 15 years – and not just the equipment. Chris is now a strong supporter of the company leading the field in using electric tools.
“In many areas in America, two-stroke engine tools are banned – they are noisy and a source of pollution. We have to have care and pride in what we do, as there is far more competition out there compared to when I started. Being the best is how we stay ahead – and using electric tools is one way to show we are leaders.”
