About John Bates

John Bates

Soft landscaper with a passion for plants, gardens and design.

I caught the gardening bug after getting involved with a community garden project which then led to me wanting to gain more knowledge and so I enrolled on the RHS practical horticulture course, which I loved.

On completing the course, it fuelled my desire to make a career change, which I did at the start of 2015.

Since then I’ve been working as a self-employed gardener, undertaking a variety of regular maintenance, pruning and planting projects at houses in Ascot, Camberley, Crowthorne, Egham, Fleet, Finchampstead, Virginia Water, Wokingham and Yateley.

In 2018 I moved the focus of my business to focus on soft landscaping to create and refresh the planting in my customer’s gardens.

I continue to expand my knowledge and skills whether that be reading books, networking or attending training events.  For details of training see qualifications.
