Paul Ayson - Foreman/Designer

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?!

Bruce Hooker - Project Manager

Bruce began with us in a foreman role, and has since moved into Project Management. He is married to Tracey, and together they have two grown-up kids, a border collie that's a bit bonkers, and a lifestyle block in Matangi. Bruce is a bit of a foodie - his dream holiday would be to spend time eating and drinking his way around the South of France. He's particularly keen on wild food, in fact the wilder the better....So if you want some advice on which wine to pair with your possum pie, you know who to speak to!

Luke Mills - Landscaper

Luke has been part of the Groundcover team for 2 years now 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 Siviter - Landscaper

Ben is one of two Bens we have on the team - it can get a little confusing! He has a background in design, and at some stage would like to use his skills to design gardens rather than dig holes in them. He is a big fan of Asian food and is a pretty good cook too - although he reckons for some reason people find that hard to believe... maybe he doesn't look like a chef? Ben was always known as the Class Clown in high school, and he sure lives up to that reputation at work some days!

Ben Davidson - Landscaper

The second of the 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!
