Who we are

From a small but ambitious start in 2007, Maydencroft has progressed to be a market leader in a range of specialist services.

Spanning the commercial, private, public, utility and charity sectors, all kinds of clients rely on our dedicated teams, commitment to sustainability and hi-tech, innovative approach.

From forestry and farmland, to rivers and wetlands, we create, restore and maintain beautiful nature reserves and spectacular urban landscaping projects. We work with the old and the new, from historic landscapes to next-generation developments.

But although our goals are big, we’re still at heart a family spirited business, focused at every stage on quality, performance and outstanding customer service.

We're proud to be...

The principle contractors for famous landscape architects, including Piet Oudolf and Wirtz International

Responsible for restoring landscapes in some of the nation's favourite historic houses

The company that maintains England's foremost garden cities, Welwyn Garden City and Letchworth Garden City

What we stand for

We take care of our environment

As a rural company based on a working farm, our environmental commitments are close to our heart.

Our carbon footprint is minimal thanks to our planting of over half a million trees and hedge plants since 2007

We recycle all our wood waste into biomass power and green waste for composting. We also own Revive, a recycled plastics brand.

Our strict environmental policies mean that rare species such as the Grey (English) Partridge thrive on our land.

We embrace clean energy, with fuel-efficient vehicles and a solar photovoltaic (PV) system for our offices.

We're connected to our local and rural roots

We may be a market leader, but we're proud to still be family-run, with close links to our community. The responsibilities we feel to the people and places around us, shape our outlook and the way we operate.

We have an ongoing programme of rural skills training for every member of our team.

We're helping promote rural areas as relevant, vibrant places to work, with apprenticeships and school visits.

We want children to develop a love for the countryside, so we welcome visits from local schools and youth groups.

We support all kinds of local outdoor community events and local sports clubs.

If you represent a school or a youth group and would like to arrange a visit - or if you're a school-leaver keen to pursue a specialised, rural apprenticeship - please get in touch

We treat our people and clients with respect

We believe in working to support and empower our employees however we can - and in being fair, flexible and transparent with our clients (which has led to many rewarding long-term working relationships).

Our team enjoys flexible working, market-leading salaries and benefits, plus a truly supportive environment.

Our employee retention rates are high, and every team member can access exceptional training and development.

We work with clients in an open-book and collaborative way, as many of the services we offer are unique.

We often provide training for our clients and stakeholders in specialist rural areas, such as hedge laying, livestock checking and forestry.

A cast-iron commitment to health and safety

We're market-leading when it comes to health and safety standards - because quite simply, we care about our people. So we have no fewer than 12 health and safety accreditations which we rigorously follow, and are independently audited for.

From PPE and appropriate workwear, to ongoing training and the ability to contact a line manager wherever employees are, we're always looking to create a positive, healthy environment - so everyone can feel comfortable, supported and above all, safe.
