Anthony Broome SNR had a vision to run his own business and in 1972, that vision came into fruition with the formation of A.P. Broome Landscapes.
Operating from Anthony’s home in Leyland, the family run business, with a small number of employees, undertook projects ranging from domestic gardens to the grounds maintenance of a local nursing home.
The business gradually expanded over the next few years and saw the successful award of a grounds maintenance contract for a large ‘blue-chip’ energy company, on a sites based in the North West.
After helping his Father at nights and on weekends 1983 saw Anthony Broome JNR join the business full time at the age of 18. Showing an interest at an early age, Anthony Broome JNR progressed his knowledge and development attending Myerscough College from June 1982 completing his National Certificate in General Horticulture.
The company continued in its successful journey and in 2002 was awarded additional gas sites covering the north of England for our blue-chip provider.
The company took advantage of this opportunity, finding a niche in the market, aiming the business towards the grounds maintenance of hazardous installations.
Having outgrown their original premises, in 2005 the company relocated to a much larger site located two miles away. The company still operates from this depot today. This site has become the head office following major refurbishment of office space and grounds to accommodate our expansion over the years.
When Anthony Broome SNR sadly passed away in 2008, Anthony Broome JNR and his wife Tracie became directors of the company.
Driven by the same work ethos and ambition, as new company directors, that first year saw the rapid expansion of A.P. Broome Landscapes, with the company doubling in size and becoming a Private Limited Company.
2008 was also the year that their son, Adam Broome, joined the company, following in the family footsteps.
Still growing in size, in 2009 A.P. Broome Landscapes secured a sizeable contract for the provision of a grounds maintenance service for Electricity substation sites across the UK.
With our knowledge and experience of working on hazardous installations, this contract provided the perfect opportunity for us to expand our client portfolio.
We still provide a grounds maintenance service today in this area, maintaining circa 17,000 substation sites across Scotland, England and Wales.
Building upon 44 years of successful allegiance with one of the UK’s energy giants, in 2016 A.P. Broome Landscapes secured a new contract working in direct partnership with a large Facilities Management organisation. This provided the opportunity for A.P. Broome Landscapes to expand into the South East, South West and South Wales – an area previously un-serviced by A.P. Broome Landscapes.
2016 also saw A.P. Broome Landscapes diversify into the Water Industry. Covering the maintenance of circa 2,200 water sites in the South West of the UK.
With our ever increasing client portfolio, A.P. Broome Landscapes are proud of the contracts we maintain and continue to provide our clients with an excellent performance record, which is second to none.
