This Surrey-based firm, founded during the 2008 recession, is the second landscape gardening venture of founder and managing director Peter Fane, 57. It offers services ranging from design and maintenance of outdoor areas to winter gritting and the creation of plant displays. Clients include Airbus, for which Nurture carries out gritting and snow-clearing, the University of London and Greene King. The firm manages more than 12,000 sites across Britain, and secured an undisclosed sum in funding from Graphite Capital last year. Sales reached £73.1m this year, thanks to its acquisition strategy, which has seen the firm buy 23 companies to date, including the St Albans-based Eco Landscapes in October.
