About Us

EGM Landscapes – Harrogate’s Leading Artificial Grass Installer & Landscaping Company

Here at EGM Landscapes we pride ourselves on customer satisfaction and make it such a priority because we know that other companies do not. It can be so frustrating to experience poor customer service. We have heard from people too many times that they have contacted another company for them to not turn up or not even get back to them. Without our customers we would not be here. So, it is important to us that someone is always at the other end of the phone to speak to (a person not a robot) and that emails or enquiries are always replied to. No job is finished until our customer is 100% happy with the work and service provided. Please see our 5* reviews on free index.

EGM Landscapes was founded in 2011 by William Shippam.

As a keen gardener throughout his childhood it was only the right decision to go into the trade once completing his business studies, chemistry and geography A levels at Rossett High School. EGM Landscapes Ltd started in the early days as Easy Green Garden and still is well known for the name. As we grew and our services evolved so did our name.

By 2014 we became EGM Landscapes to summarise Easy Green Maintenance and Landscapes. We have grown progressively since 2011 – from a single vehicle to a small fleet with a full time landscaping team.

Our success is simple.. ‘We combine great customer service and high quality workmanship to create beautiful gardens that are not only beautiful but practical for our customers’ – William Shippam, Managing Director.

We are proud to be currently ranked 2nd out of 2,251 UK Home and Garden Maintenance companies by FreeIndex

EGM Landscapes – Our Team

William Shippam

William Shippam

Managing Director

Will is the company’s Managing Director. Since childhood he has always had a passion for landscape gardening and being in the outdoors. When he left Rossett School in 2011, he decided to set up a landscape and gardening company called Easy Green. Starting off on his own with a Ford Fiesta and electric lawn mower, his company then grew and employed 2 new team members. As Easy Green progressed and landscaping projects became the main part of the business, Will decided to abbreviate the company name to E.G.M Landscapes. Since then the business has gone from strength to strength, from becoming a Private Limited Company in 2016 to now employing 7 members of staff, 4 company vans and the required machinery to transform Yorkshire’s gardens!
