Lady Penelope gardening was founded in 2007 by Angela Palmerton to provide a bespoke country garden maintenance service for private garden owners in and around the South Downs National Park Authority, West Sussex. Over the past ten years the business has developed in three specialist areas: estates and gardens, conservation and restoration and design and landscaping. We now operate in three counties, West Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey and our in-house services include horticulture, arboriculture (including tree surgery), groundsmanship, habitat creation and management and historic park and garden restoration.
We are proud to offer our clients a team of highly skilled employees, for example, all our gardeners are trained to RHS level 2 in amenity horticulture and above. We are passionate about and specialists in the sustainable management of wildlife habitats within gardens and estates. We are experienced at working in partnership with other contractors on large scale projects, as preferred contractor to conservation management consultants and for large statutory and charitable organisations, such at Natural England and Sussex Wildlife Trust.
Our primary objective is to operate our business with care. Care for the wellbeing of our employees to ensure they can work with confidence in having the skills, training and competencies they require, care in the way we interact and communicate with our clients and partners and care for the environment in which we are commissioned to work.
We are in a period of expansion, particularly in increasing its exposure as a specialist in the maintenance of country estates and historic parks.
