Our Team

Judith Newman

As the overall managing director and financial controller of the company, Judith deals with all new enquiries and visits your garden FOC to discuss your needs. She will then produce a detailed quote for you. The Bayleaf office is open 5 days a week 8.30 to 5.00 Monday to Friday. Judith is also a garden designer and can produce designs and plans to suit your needs.

If you need to discuss anything whether it is new or existing business, Judith is the one to talk to first. Regular contact with clients is part of our strength as gardens change and evolve and so do expectations and a hands on approach is the only way to achieve what our clients want.

If you have any questions regarding booking a visit, changing a visit or anything to do with timings of work please call him on 01548 857434. Judith is also actively involved in the garden work so please leave a message if he isn’t in the office when you call.

We have restructured our teams for this coming season and now have 3 van or team leaders who are responsible for their vans, co workers and their gardens.

Matthew Thorn

Matt has been with bayleaf for several years now and is responsible for the mowing and strimming of all our gardens and the maintenance of our larger properties during the season and is part of our fencing and decking team working closely with experienced fencer mark brisland.

Toby Yeoman

Toby started at the same time as Matt and is a highly qualified tree surgeon.
Bayleaf supported Toby through his tree surgery training during 2016 and he is now fully qualified to tackle any tree work.

Toby and his right hand man Will Giffen are also in charge of hedge cutting.
