who we are....
Knowle Landscapes, a family business, was set up in 1997. John and Mark Coffen, both qualified engineers, carry out the work.
Amelia Coffen supports them both in the office and on site.
John and Mark grew up on a farm in Church Knowle and can trace their Purbeck ancestry back through five generations.
At an early age they were helping their parents in the construction of a campsite. And since then, they have never looked back....
John and Mark do not sub-contract their jobs, and are always present on site. When needed, they can call on the
services of various specialist skills, including those of a local carpenter, garden designer and electrician.
.... and what our customers say:
“They worked cleanly and with order and precision... a stress-free operation ...
I would commend them for their punctuality.” (S.P., Poole)
“ ... highly delighted” (D.B., Weymouth)
“You’ve arrived on time, been polite and helpful...” (S.M., Corfe Castle)
“Thank you for the excellent garden transformation and your general good humour.” (B.C., Corfe Castle)
