our people

Zenscape was formally set up in December 2019, having evolved from Zen Garden and Paving Services which was established in 2014.  Joe set the businesses up for his keen interest and love of soft and hard landscaping. 

Zenscape are accredited members on the Marshall’s Register. The Zenscape team have recently won two awards at the Marshalls Register Regional Awards 2019/2020:

  • Best  large patio over 40m2.
  • Best engineering achievement.

Joe Cheetham

Joe has been working in garden design and landscaping for over 14 years, and he enjoys and specialises in working with both the oldest and the newest materials around. His vast experience means that he is very knowledgeable in terms of project management, and collaborating with others - his own team and external suppliers and contractors - so that you can be sure he gets the best results for you. He has an extremely fine eye for detail, and for the tiniest of finishing touches - which can make all the difference between an ‘OK’ job and one that amazes!

Louise Cheetham

Louise, Joe’s wife, is dedicated to providing you with the best possible customer service throughout your Zenscape journey. After a career in the public and private sector, she now manages our back office and deals with all aspects of ensuring your project moves ahead with the minimum of fuss, and the maximum of efficiency. She’ll help Joe source the hard-to-find specialist elements your design may require, and - as your main contact, at the end of a telephone - will always be available to you, to ensure that everything moves ahead as planned.

Travis Speake

Travis has been with us for two years and is our horticultural apprentice. A fast learner, he has enjoyed working in all weathers, and ensuring that the purer gardening elements of your project are sourced, planted and maintained in the best possible way. He’ll advise on topics such as soil types for planting and different options available for soft landscaping.

Ashley Spurr

Ashley is a carpenter by trade and has been acquiring more detailed qualifications while working with us. One of Ashley's hobbies is hand-making walking canes, which requires enormous amounts of concentration and attention to detail. At Zenscape we pride ourselves on our precision and finishing touches, so are very lucky to have Ashley as part of the team to apply those intricate skills to our customers' projects.
