  • Overview

    Grace Landscapes Ltd is based in Mirfield, West Yorkshire and was founded in 1978 by Tim Grace. The company provides high quality grounds maintenance and landscape construction across the North of England, with annual sales of around £6.5m.

    Importantly, Grace Landscapes Ltd has regional depots in the North East, North West and the Midlands which fits perfectly into Nurture’s North Region, run by regional director Nick Hills. 

    Having built the business up from scratch, Tim was reluctant to sell to a large FM company knowing that Grace would lose the family ethos and the quality it had built up over the years. Selling the company to Nurture seemed the perfect solution. Even though Nurture has grown into an acclaimed national contractor, it retains the ideals of a family business, with 18% of the company still owned by its staff.

    The company will continue to trade as Grace Landscapes Ltd until the end of 2018, and will then be rebranded as Nurture Landscapes from January 2019.

    Peter Fane, comments:

    I’ve known the owners Tim Grace and Hugh Pawsey for years and have greatly admired their business. The company is full of great people who deliver work of exceptional quality, which is evident in their 17 BALI Awards and some of the fabulous clients they look after”.

    Tim Grace says of the acquisition:

    I am delighted to be handing the reins over to Nurture. Having known Peter and his business for years, I know he will enhance what Hugh and I have already built and will help Grace continue to develop and grow alongside Gavin Jones and Frosts, our peers who we much admire and respect. Peter has put together a group of the best landscape companies in the UK and we are proud and honoured to join the Nuture family . It will be sad to let go after all these years but I know Grace will be kept in safe hands.”

    The legal team at Thomson Snell & Passmore is delighted to have been able to assist with the purchase and is looking forward to watching and helping the company continue to develop.
