Paul Ayson - Project Manager
Paul is one of our foremen, and is our longest-standing team member - he's been with us since 2008. He is married to Tracey and they have two kids, and an anti-social cat. He tries not to swear too loudly when Tottenham Hotspurs lose a game, and reckons that if he wasn't doing landscaping, he'd be a surfing instructor. He's also a bit of a whiz at decorating birthday cakes. Who knew?!
John Wilson - Estimator
John joined the team in July, and has taken on the role of pricing our quotes. Some of you may recognise John from his time at Complete Landscape Supplies - not surprisingly he's got an extensive landscaping background, so is a perfect fit for Groundcover.
He's currently doing up a 1963 Chevrolet C10, and is actually pretty keen on restoring all sorts of things - from houses and caravans to vehicles. John's "lesson from Mum" that he still lives by today, is to treat others how you would expect to be treated, so great customer service comes naturally to him. Apparently his hidden talent is singing - but only after a few beers, so our team social events could become rather entertaining!
Simon Mason - Foreman
Simon joined Groundcover in February 2018 as one of our Foremen. Apparently he's been told he has a "face for radio", and was known as "nefariously handsome - from a distance" in his High School yearbook. There seems to be a theme emerging here! He follows the Brazilian Women's Volleyball team closely - for their style and grace naturally, and reckons that if he could spend a week anywhere in the world it would be in Antarctica. Not too hot, no phone reception and no traffic are what appeals to him about that chilly destination. It's not difficult to work out that Simon has a great sense of humour, so he's fitted in with the rest of the team nicely.
Luke Mills - Foreman
Luke has been part of the Groundcover team since the beginning of 2015 and is our resident basketball player (every company needs one!). He's travelled to Australia to play with his team, and is a keen fan of the Boston Celtics. Not surprisingly, he's rather tall, and was known as the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) at high school. He reckons if he wasn't a landscaper, he'd have been an accountant. He's obviously got a thing for numbers, because he's also a master sudoku player!
Ben Davidson - Landscaper
One of two Bens that work at Groundcover, Ben Davidson started with us in June 2016, and quickly became a valued member of the team. Like a few of our guys, Ben is keen on the ocean and is a fan of skim-boarding. When he's not at the beach, Ben is kept busy with his wife and three kids. He's also a fan of Slam Poetry, which is a competition where speakers recite original works and get awarded points for their efforts - we just love the fact we have a poetic landscaper in our midst!
Kieran Mills - Landscaper
Kieran was employed as a landscaper in January 2018.
