Andy Offord: Partner
Andy graduated from the University of Bath with an Honours Degree in Horticulture in 1983, specialising in amenity horticulture and then spent over 6 years working in retail management. Andy, with his wife Alison, set up their own business, Living Landscapes in 1989. The business expanded into retail when Andy established a paving and aquatic centre in Staunton, near Ledbury. The Watershed Paving and Aquatic Centre relocated to its current address at Radway Bridge Nurseries in Spring 2010 with The Petshed opening three years later in 2013. Andy can occasionally be found in the shop, but spends a lot of his time managing the businesses from his office in Newent.
Alison Offord: Partner
Alison, married to Andy for more than 30 years now, started her working life at Dowty's in Gloucester before moving to work for the Halifax Building Society. During the early years of the business, Alison spent her time looking after the administration. Working part time in the business now she occasionally fills in at the shop as and when needed.
