About me.
 
Simon Crispin Oakley. (Principal - Crispin Creatives)
 
A brief biography.
 
I have live and grown up locally, schooled at Homefield independent..  After leaving school I worked at Robin Hill Landscapes whilst attending Kingston Maurward College to gain a City & Guilds  Phase II Adv. in ‘Farm & Estate Management’  
 
Continuing to work for Robin Hill thus gaining hands on experience from the wide range of projects.  With skills gained at college I often worked as part of a two man team designated for decking and other timber based projects,  including a very large deck in the grounds of Birmingham Midshires HQ at Wolverhampton and Show Decks at Hampton Court & Ebbw Vale.
 
To further my education I attended  Bournemouth College 1992-94 gaining my Nation Diploma in Business & Finance.   On completion I returned to my former employer for a further two years. This enabled me to hone my landscaping skills, 
 
I then changed career and moved into Machinery Sales and Demo's from 1998-2000.  Although I enjoyed meeting people and getting to see some lovely estates, it was at the end of the day a Sales Job with sales targets as the driving force.  Not for me.
 
My next move was IT support for a large Bank.  Although it was then a secure 9-5 job, it wasn’t for me. I would always be dreaming of being outside working with nature.  I knew I had the background and skill set to start up my own Landscaping business, so plans for my escape were drawn up.
 
January 1st 2005 came and ‘Crispin Creatives’ was born.  I now run my own small, but successful landscaping business.  I am proud of my work and business and put my name to it.  I can honestly say that the fulfilment of working with clients from the initial meeting and planning through to the finished dream garden, is a job that would be hard to beat.  My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. 
 
I hope you can see some of the passion I have for landscaping in the photos threaded on this website.  I am also passionate about my business and the customer service given to all my clients no matter how large or small the project.  This is why I believe that ‘Crispin Creatives’ is thriving with a full order book in these difficult times.
