Cordès Horticultural is a small team of gardeners, landscapers, and tree surgeons based in Whitstable, Kent with a verdant passion for the industry.

We began trading in 2012 tending borders in small domestic gardens and have since gone on to win contracts with bodies as prestigious as Canterbury Cathedral. We strive to use only the best quality plants and materials from our trusted local suppliers.

We believe in contributing to the local economy and remain committed to sourcing sensibly in the hope of reducing ‘air miles’ of materials. Our preferred methods are organic – we will only use chemicals where appropriate and safe for the surrounding environment.

All of our staff have undergone industry training in their relevant fields.

Qualifications include:

  • RHS Diploma in Horticulture
  • NPTC CS30/31/38/39 Chainsaw
  • NPTC PA1/PA6AW Pesticides

As well as courses in:

  • Fruit Tree Pruning
  • Tree Inspection
  • Carpentry
  • Bricklaying

Not forgetting years of prior experience working for other gardeners, landscapers, carpenters, and builders.

We are fully insured and hold a Registered Waste Carrier’s Licence.

At Cordès Horticultural, we will always go above and beyond to provide the client with a high quality service.

Amazing value for money. Bill achieved in a day what most people would in a month! He sorted our trees and our vegetable garden out beautifully, with time spare to get the tractor running and mow our gardens, saving one of our sheep in the process! Bill is a hard grafter and a star!

Hi Bill. A friend of mine wants shelves made of old scaffolding boards. (Beats me why) 2 or 3 x 4' boards would do I think. Is it viable? Dx.

Good afternoon folks,

Firstly, my apologies for the radio silence if you've tried to contact via phone, email, or any other platform recently and not had a response.
We sincerely value you and your custom.

As the governor and key point of contact for every aspect of this business it is easy to become overwhelmed during intensely busy periods.
I have lived and breathed this business 24/7 for over 6 years and frankly I'm burnt out!
I am taking a week off to assess my own mental health as we should all do, openly and proudly.
In the meantime the lads will be working out in the field stoically as usual, and I will be trawling through the admin to get all these enquiries back up to speed.

We have a superb business here that delivers high quality work and I couldn't be prouder of the strides we've made since 2012.

I look forward to continuing stronger than ever and implementing new processes to drive the business forward professionally and sustainably.

I'm grateful for all the continued support and faith you've all shown, and urge you to support anyone you know who seems out of character or behaving differently.

Once we conquer our minds the world is our collective oyster!

Thank you.
Bill

Sending big hugs and hope for a speedy recovery rest up now.xxx

Anything you need bill - you know where we and the team are!

Sounds as if you need some office back up as well as time out occasionally. Look after yourself - you deserve a break. X

If you broke your leg you would physically have to take time out. Mental health is no different. Look after yourself 💜 and good for you for being so open about it #reducethestigma

You all do a fab job but you need to look after yourselves first. Take care love your fav nurse 😉

Take care. Thought it wasn’t like you to be in touch. Enjoy a rest x

So proud of you Bill as it’s not always easy to talk about. I admire you more than anything. Now rest up xxx

Love you and very proud of you xx

Wishing you well darling Bill. I've been there and know wholeheartedly how difficult it can be to deal with the stress that a job that you love and give your all to can bring. I hope that you are soon on an even keel my friend. Doing what you love is such a privilege that few get the chance to enjoy. Xx

Hi Bill. After 30 years of doing this landscape Daily Grind I know exactly what you mean. Time to time assessment is necessary. Contact me sometime so we can talk. It would be helpful for us both.

mate you take care dont forget what you said at BNI the other week, but i fully understand. We are the same and its all going over my head, when i rejoined Stephen it was just me in the office that was fine with about 6 jobs a week 6 quotes to work out 6 emails to send 6 customers to see 6 lorries to unload now its about 4-6 a day x that lot by 4- 6 and there is still only me to cope. Its when you start to get depressed and make mistakes I still love what i do and always have.

Bill, that is extremely honest and true what you have written, hope you have a fantastic weeks break from your business, you should always actively think about your own time and how you spend it. There are two things only in this world we have control over how we spend it, Money and TIME

Always here if you need me mate, even if its just a chat x

You got this brother 💪🏼 come have snuggles with the girls anytime xx

You know where we are. Xx 😘 Stay strong and lean on the love & support you have around you

Sending good vibes from all at Applejacks Landscapes xxxx

Hats off sir!!! 🎩 bigger man then most mate. Focus on yourself and everything around you will fall into place!! Just learnt that!! And its changed everything!!

Bill, you've got a great business there, get you healthy and feeling good, the rest will follow. You're doing the right thing, let's chat during the week mate.

Fair play it is not easy running your own business and can be a very lonely place, I know and feel your pain, I can speak from experience and have had my own problems dealing with stress and bouts of depression. It's great being busy and successful but sometimes it comes with a price and can get on top of you! Look after yourself Bill, I'm always available if you need a chat bud!

You deserve a break Bill. Don't feel guilty, but seriously consider offloading some of your non site / admin tasks. My business went strength to strength when I let go a little and now I have an amazing team to support me. X

Break will do you good mate all the best

Keep conquering my lovely, you’ve done really well & will continue to with your strong attitude to business & life in general. Take care & keep safe xx 😘

Well said Bill, hope you're ok 👍

Bill your work is amazing, you should be so very proud, your business is such a success and wouldn’t be like it if you hadn’t done all that you have, you have come so far since the dirty bowl days 😂 so make sure you take some time to look after your self Matey x x

Take it easy mate X

No footpath closed sign 😂

Ohhh chevrons 😀

I am not sure if the comment below about footpath closed sign was aware this part ofThe Heath is a private unadapted road and therefore is not part of the Highway, Bill and his team worked professionally and left everything safe and secure. I wish everyone in The Heath was aware of this and did not continue to park along this road as it’s a access only , some one has even parked under a NO parking sign ! Give me strength!
