MEET THE FOUNDERS
Hello, I'm Jane, the Thomas in Breton Thomas. Thanks for visiting our site, let me introduce myself...
Originally trained in graphic design, I worked for twelve years in London’s publishing industry, designing and managing the production of all manner of books - mainly for kids. It was a great learning experience.
Yearning for fresh air, I decided to seek out new creative challenges - retraining in Horticulture and Garden Design at Capel Manor College. Whilst balancing work and a young family, I achieved a masters in Landscape Architecture at Greenwich University and have recently been accepted as a chartered member of the Landscape Institute.
Jackie (the Breton in Breton Thomas) and I have shared a passion for transforming outdoor spaces since meeting in 2014. We’ve always valued collaboration and it became central to how we do business. We have an eco-system of trusted design, trade and supply partners who share our values.
In 2020 Jackie made the life-changing decision to relocate to New Zealand, her husband’s native land. Through the magic of technology we still collaborate - Breton Thomas, a global enterprise!
I’m based in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
WHAT MAKES US, US
We value our partnership! We see better results by fostering good relationships - not only with you - our clients - but also suppliers and trade partners. We work hard to be collaborative not pushy, listen not lecture, involve not exclude. We get our best results when we work together, pulling in the same direction.
We don’t just care about what we do, but also how we do it. We don’t just concentrate on how beautiful our gardens will look, but how well they work and the positive results they deliver. We aim to create purposeful, sustainable, thriving environments and we’re not afraid to get muddy doing it.
Our creative efforts are always underpinned by technical know-how and attention to detail. We use technology to ensure everything that should line up, does line up.
We do this because it makes us happy! Nature and growing things have a unique super power to improve our mood and raise our spirits. We want to pass this happy on to our clients.
