LEAP Success Stories
The Green Man’s Garden is an ecologically-driven landscape design and maintenance company based in Lewes, East Sussex that’s a little bit art, and a little bit science. They believe people’s outdoor living spaces can be ecologically valuable as well as tailored to their needs and vision. Our area of coverage includes the counties of Sussex, Surrey, and Kent.
Every bespoke garden is designed to not only be an oasis of outdoor heaven but support the surrounding habitat of the natural environment.
“It’s been both inspiring and comforting to have seen – and had the support – of so many local business people, attending the sessions that you arranged and listening to their advice and hard learned lessons. Without your support and that of your speakers and mentors we would be in a far weaker position and certainly wouldn’t have the confidence that we do to help realise our dream.”
