About Green Valley
Green Valley Lawn Care is owned and operated by Graham Wright.
Graham was happily on his way to becoming a Software Engineer, studying a degree at Sheffield Hallam University, when he had a change of heart and direction. Realising that he was more suited to a practical, customer based career, instead of being stuck in an office staring at a computer screen, Green Valley was born, and Graham's journey into self employment started. Happy times!
Yes we admit, gardening has very little to do with software, but bear with us. Graham is born and bred in Sheffield, but spent six
years living in Grimsby originally studying a HND in Multimedia there. While studying, he met his lovely better half, (who was on the same course)
and decided to stick around in Grimsby while she went on to study her degree there. Graham took on a job doing the grounds maintenance at one of the
caravan parks in Cleethorpes (not many website jobs in Grimsby), while waiting to move back to Sheffield to start his degree. Graham discovered that he
thoroughly enjoyed the work, and looked forward to every new day mowing and trimming around the park.
Eventually moving back to Sheffield and starting his degree, Graham got an allotment at Woodseats. Spending time on the plot reminded him just how much he enjoyed working with his hands (and cool machinery), and slowly the idea formed that maybe the right career was doing just that.
The rest is history..... (except the student loans, bah)
Graham still gets do do some coding while building and updating this website, and he also gets to talk about himself in the 3rd person, which is weird.
