Tony Richards

Graduate Landscapes Managing Director

Tony grew up in Southport, Lancashire and then studied Horticulture at Bath University. Since then, he’s enjoyed a diverse horticultural path from house plant importation to fruit farming in America, all of which led him to set up his own business in 1990, when Graduate Landscapes was formed. The company has grown in size and reputation, whilst still remaining a family-run business at heart.  Tony plays a prominent role in all aspects of the business and is very proud of now employing around 60 very capable staff.

Married, with four children, Tony always encourages the best in people with his ‘can-do’ attitude. He is the positive one in the office, always ready to offer his support when needed it.

He plays and coaches at Haslemere Hockey Club and is always seeking a new adventure.
