EGM Landscapes – Harrogate’s Leading Gardening Company

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 Landcapes 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 7th out of 2,393 UK Home and Garden Maintenance companies by FreeIndex
