Company History

As mentioned, we’re a forward-looking company, working with the latest equipment and using technology to improve the way we work which makes us even more efficient, but we’re also proud of our historic horticultural roots. Claphams’ whole ethos and high standards have evolved from its history as a renowned horticultural company. You can rely on us to know our onions! We’re told by our clients that Claphams is a company that’s easy to deal with and a source of great information and inspiration. We also have decades of experience to call on. All of our expertise is at your disposal.

William Clapham
Claphams was originally founded back in 1870 by William Clapham. William served his apprenticeship working at The Chatsworth House estate in Derbyshire, learning skills and developing techniques that would serve him well in his own business in later years. He went on to open a nursery in Stockport, where he was known for transplanting trees, using a method he had devised while at Chatsworth. William Clapham’s first major project was to make the roof garden on the Blackpool Tower in 1890.

Claphams Today
Since then, the company has gone on to become one of the largest independently owned landscaping companies in the country. Claphams has also worked all around the world, including projects in Hong Kong and 700 acres of desert forestation in Abu Dhabi. In the UK we have contracts covering all parts of the country, providing commercial maintenance and landscaping services. We’ve built a reputation, based on our heritage, our values and our skills.

Claphams are strongly committed to staying at the forefront of the industry. The management team would be happy to talk to you about your aspirations and requirements, so we can help make it happen.

“I have dealt with Claphams Landscape Services Limited for a number of years and found them to be an excellent contractor who deliver a good quality and reliable service.”
