Director and Head Gardener - Chris Sheldon
Previously the training manager for one of the largest commercial grounds maintenance companies in the UK, Chris decided he wanted to move onto private, residential gardens where high quality and attention to detail are expected by discerning homeowners. After completing his RHS Level 2 in horticulture he landed the role of Head Gardener on Laura Ashley's former estate in the Elan Valley, Mid Wales, managing 80 acres of formal gardens and lawns, woodland, kitchen gardens and small livestock. In 2011 Chris moved to Ascot and set up Distinguished Gardens, quickly establishing a highly regarded maintenance business. Bringing with him his exceptional knowledge and expertise of managing the grounds of a substantial estate, Distinguished Gardens specialises in the maintenance and development of large private and prestigious estates.
