Richard PearceContracts Manager
An experienced soft landscaper and estate gardener, Richard specialises in providing structured garden maintenance plans and development strategies for large sites. While managing the daily requirements of the Maintenance teams, he relishes being on site and getting his hands dirty.
Richard studied Environmental Science at the University of Leeds and initially worked in the FMCG sales market, before coming to his senses and starting a new career planting trees and hedge laying in rural Oxfordshire. Since then, Richard has gained valuable experience of the horticultural industry – whether operating diggers, wielding chainsaws, fiddling with irrigation or installing complex planting schemes – and is grateful to have a career that goes hand in hand with his love of nature and the outdoors. Richard started with Randle Siddeley during the summer of 2020 as an on-site Team Leader, progressing to Maintenance Manager in February 2021, then Contracts Manager in January 2022.
Outside his working hours Richard can be found hiking in the hills or walking along waterways. He enjoys sea fishing, science fiction books, German beer and Scandinavian heavy metal.
