From an early age Will was drawn to garden mowing, see the picture above taken in Steep around 1956.
As a teenager besides mowing the family lawn in Petersfield he took on several mowing jobs around town.
A spell of factory work convinced Will to take an offer of a job on a dairy farm in Rogate and found he liked mowing on a bigger scale. He later worked at Harting Grass Drier, grass tending, cutting and processing 24 hours a day.
In 1973 Will started with a farm contractor working across Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Wiltshire. The focus was on industry leading operations in heavy grass and maize foraging, Anhydrous Ammonia Fertiliser Soil Injection (nh3) and Direct Seed Drilling with Bettinson triple disc machines.
After a short spell of forestry work in the mid 80s’ Will was asked to join a Catherington based company where his portfolio expanded to include wild flower sowing with a Hunters Slot Seeder, hedge trimming, farm construction, concreting and 360 excavator operating, including using the excavator for large scale garden, agricultural and industrial landscaping.
Following the birth of his daughter, Milly, in 1992, Will became house husband and took various part time jobs. In 1995 he took on some lawn mowing in Froxfield and was soon in demand for mowing and hedge trimming in that area.
In 1996 Will bought a van and started gardening full time with help from a friend John Guy, a garden machinery supplier.
Will retired in 2021 after 25 years of gardening across East Hampshire, often staying many years with clients.
