Kelvin Mason – Senior Consultant

Wessex Grounds Services - Kelvin Victor MasonKelvin Victor Mason - Consultant at WGSWessex Grounds Services are absolutely delighted to announce the newest member of the WGS team and our Senior Consultant, Kelvin Mason.

Kelvin is an excellent horticulturist and he and Stephen have worked together previously at Brighton Parks Department.  His first project is working on a local authority plant nursery relocation project in the Manchester area but he will be available to assist with horticultural projects in the South of England in 2019.

Kelvin’s qualifications are too numerous to mention but suffice to say he has the Master of Horticulture (RHS), an I.L.A.M (Dip) and an O.N.D Amenity Horticulture (Distinction) to name but a few.

He is also a member of the Institute of Horticulture, the Institute of Groundsmanship, the Royal Horticultural Society and the Arboricultural Association and has a wealth of experience and knowledge spanning over 30 years and which is second to none.

He is also a part-time tutor with the Horticultural Correspondence College in Devon where he tutors, amongst other things, both Level 2 and Level 3 Royal Horticultural Society Courses and ABC Level 2 Arboriculture and Forestry Courses.

And if that were not enough, Kelvin also teaches RHS Level 2 Practical Horticulture Courses and Level 3 Practical Courses at Sparsholt College in Hampshire.

During what little time he has left he loves to tend to his own garden and fit in a bit of long distance running.

Please join us in welcoming Kelvin to our team.  We hope that many existing and new customers will benefit from his extensive expertise and knowledge over the coming years.

If you would like to talk to Kelvin, please get in touch with us directly on 0300 303 8616 or email enquiries@wessexgroundsservices.co.uk.

Health & Safety Update

Here at Wessex Grounds Services we take Health & Safety Seriously.

  • Health and safety is a top priority for Wessex Grounds Services.  All team members enjoyed a health and safety update from our health and safety consultant Martin Adlem.  Subjects covered included risk assessment, COSHH, electricity, noise, vibration and manual handling.
  • Our operatives have the very best equipment and we are constantly trialling safer and more environmentally friendly products.  All members of the team recently undertook a training course in the care and maintenance of strimmers, hedge cutters, blowers, chainsaws and cut off saws, to ensure they are always safe and in top condition for our customers.
  • DBS.  We are often asked if our staff are “vetted”.  Every single member of our team is routinely vetted and we do not employ staff without an enhanced DBS check.  So whether you are a school or a social care provider, our team can be relied upon.
