Wilverton garden and landscape services are owned and run by husband and wife team, Neil and Charlotte Rawlins.
Having left his position as company director of a local manufacturing business in 2016, Neil decided to pursue his passion for horticulture. He soon secured a voluntary position at Castle hill estate, Filleigh, where he was to shadow the head gardener for 18 months, primarily working within the picturesque millennium garden, the historic walled garden and the greenhouse where he was to develop and hone his horticultural skills.
In September 2017, Neil enrolled on a RHS course in practical horticulture at RHS Rosemoor (via Bicton college) to further expand and enhance his knowledge and skills. A few months later he also achieved his Pa1/Pa6 NPTC certification in the safe use of pesticides.
At the start of 2018, Neil and Charlotte began the process of turning two years of exhaustive planning into reality, and in March that year - Wilverton Garden & Lawn care services was formed.
When they are not busy working, Neil and Charlotte like spending quality time with their young children - Harry, James and Antonia. This often involves camping trips, days at the beach and supporting their children in their own particular hobbies and interests.
