Avant Gardener was established in Surrey, in 1998, whilst I was at university. Early in 2007, I moved back to Stoke-on-Trent, my birthplace, and the gardening business was re-established in Staffordshire, where we continue to develop our regular customer base.

We pride ourselves in building the business based on the following principles:

  • honesty and trustworthiness
  • friendliness and personability
  • hardwork and reliability
  • ethical and moral
  • thorough and professional

Following these qualities and standards over the years have helped us build good working relationships with our customers, getting to know both them, and what they want in their gardens. The large majority of our work comes through the word-of-mouth recommendations of satisfied customers.

Excellent references and testimonials are available from previous and existing customers including a Vicarage, a senior home help coordinator, a member of the trading standards and various businesses and professionals.

We are listed on the Staffordshire Council Traders Register and are a member of the Royal Horticultural Society.
