About Us

Founded by Alaster McAnaw in 1999, Evergreen Cheshire Ltd is one of the most respected garden landscaping firms in the North West.

We are specialists in garden maintenance, landscaping and design services in and around Northwich, Cheshire.

Our highly skilled and dedicated team pride themselves on their attention to detail, ensuring that every aspect of our work is carried out to the very highest standards. We believe this is what makes us the first choice for garden landscaping and maintenance in the North West region.

That is why our company has never needed to advertise – all our growth is through ‘word of mouth’ recommendations from our valued customers.


ALASTER founded the company back in 1999, after returning from Gstaad in Switzerland, where he helped to build and develop an 18 hole golf course. Outside of work, Alaster is a keen outdoor sportsman – from cycling and running, to outdoor swimming and clay pigeon shooting. All of this now has to fit around his daughter Annie, who he absolutely adores. Alaster is a workaholic, and if he had his way would never have time out from his business; luckily his wife Mel is a holiday enthusiast so makes sure he takes regular time out to spend with his family.

DAVE has been on a colourful career path that has taken him from managing logistics businesses, to working in charitable organisations, as well as challenging voluntary work, where he has enjoyed every minute of his extensive career.

His business and people experience compliment the skills of the Evergreen team, supporting the business every step of the way with future developments.

Outside of work, Dave has a busy family life with younger daughter Sami, wife Roxi, grown up daughters and a gorgeous granddaughter; as well as his two allotments to keep him busy – just as he likes it!

LAURA joined the team in 2016 to set up and run our new offices. Her background in accountancy, recruitment and teaching means she is super organised and has a wide skills base – perfect for running all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff at Evergreen!

Outside of work, she’s busy looking after her son George, husband Chris, and high maintenance Yorkshire Terrier, Tiny. For fun, Laura loves anything to do with food and divides her free time equally between cooking, eating and watching other people cook and eat on cookery programs.

KAYLA has worked for some of New Zealand’s leading landscape designers and is now bringing her skills and experience to the UK. Her inspiration has been gained by travelling to 60+ countries and gaining privileged access to the estates of some of the wealthiest land owners in the world.

Like many Kiwis, Kayla is an adventurous girl who enjoys many water sports including kite boarding and diving. She is, of course, an ardent gardener who loves exploring new planting ideas at home and also visiting some of world’s most well known landscape designs, both old and new.

STUART is one of our longest serving team members. His specialities include natural stone work and water features, as well as joinery. His previous experience was working for a bespoke kitchen company, which has been put to good use with our fantastic outdoor rooms and kitchens.

Outside of work, Stuart and his partner Suzanne have three lovely children and a Border Collie, who keep him busy. When he does get a rare minute to himself, he can be found carp fishing on Dovemere.

JACK is the longest serving member of the team, and has been a part of Evergreen from the beginning. During this time he has worked in various roles and responsibilities, but most recently has become team leader on our gardening team. This is where his passion lies, which is great because he’s fantastic at it!

Jack is married to the love of his life, Hazel, with whom he has two super boys. We hope they’re going to become the next generation of ‘Team Evergreen’ after seen their digging skills!

GEOFF has masses of experience in grounds maintenance and green keeping, having been head greenkeeper at a local (and prestigious) golf course, as well as managing his own gardening company for many years.

Geoff and his wife Pauline enjoy their holidays and have been going to Greece for the last 20+ years. When they aren’t on holiday they can be found socialising with their many friends or walking their dog, Lady.

ASHLEY (aka Cookie) has worked in the building trade before joining Evergreen, where he heads up a landscaping van, so not surprisingly his skills are brickwork and paving.

He is a real petrol head at heart and is always tinkering with his latest project. His other passion is off road cycling – basically he enjoys anything as long as he’s in the driving seat!

KEV is one of the newest members to our team but he’s already making his mark, being one of the team members who constructed the gold medal winning ‘Business & Pleasure’ garden and the RHS Tatton Flower Show 2017.

Outside of work Kev enjoys weekends away with his young family – camping in Wales is on the top of their list.

ADAM joined the team in 2017, having been a qualified Chef for many years. Having recently had a little boy he decided that a change of career and working hours was in order, and we’re so pleased that he made that decision. He was a key member of the team involved in the construction of the RHS Flower Show, Business & Pleasure garden, in which Jake Curley received a gold medal, in the Young Designer category.

JAKE the cheeky Springer, joined the team in January 2013. Since then he’s become a firm favourite with Evergreen’s regular customers, and quite often keeps their dogs company when Alaster is working.

When he’s not out working with Alaster, he can be found swimming in Budworth Mere, or running after rabbits in Marbury Park. His favourite foods are duck and broccoli stems (which his grandma saves up for him each week).
