David Newman founded Newman Landscapes Ltd in 2007 after being involved in the horticultural industry since leaving school in 1998.
From a young age David always had a keen interest in horticulture. David could often be found in the garden creating spaces to attract wildlife or on the allotment. One of David’s earliest projects was the creation of wildlife area with a pond at his school for which he received a Special Commendation from the local MP.
After leaving school David attended the highly acclaimed Moreton Morrell College in Warwickshire, where he studied all aspects of the Horticulture Industry and sharpened his skills. As a student David was involved in a lot of prestigious projects including designing award-winning gardens for BBC Gardeners World Live at the NEC and The Chelsea Flower Show.
Since launching Newman Landscapes Ltd, David has not stood still. Besides maintaining a successful business, David has also designed sensory gardens and wildlife gardens for local schools. Recently, David designed a Dementia Garden for a Local Nursing Home to the delight of the staff and residents. David was also the proud recipient of a Silver Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society for his show garden at Gardeners World Live at the NEC in 2014.

Michael began his horticulture career on the golf course. Beginning at Cottesmore Country Club for ten years he left to become Deputy Head Green Keeper at Lamerwood Country Club. After being in the position for two years he was promoted to Course Manager and remained there in that position for a further ten years. He then became Course Manager at Crosby Golf Club but was made redundant after eight years of service. Following redundancy, Michael made the move over to grounds maintenance.
After working as an operative for a year for another Grounds Maintenance company, Michael joined Newman Landscapes Ltd in 2015, as a Team Leader. Michael’s abilities valued experience were recognised which soon progressed him to his current role as Operations Manager.
I’m Gary Simpson Contracts Manager at Newman Landscapes, I’ve been with the company for 18 months. I started on their Orbit Group sites and was promoted to Contracts Manager in May 22.
My working life of over the past 30 years has been in the golf course industry where I reached the positions of Head Greenkeeper and Deputy Course Manager. This gave me a wonderful career for which I’m proud of. High standards and attention to detail were paramount in this industry and is also what I expect from all operatives here at Newman Landscapes. We are an up-and-coming force in the ground maintenance business and I’m really looking forward in playing my part in its progress.
