We Are Sleigh Landscapes

Sleigh Landscapes have been operating as a Landscaping Contractor for over 50 years and employ a highly trained, experienced team of staff. We operate our business on the basis that all teams are interchangeable to ensure that we are always able to meet the needs of our customers and the contract requirements and allocate the most suitable team for the job. We operate with both landscaping and grounds maintenance teams, this enables us to utilise each team member’s skills to provide the optimum results for our customers.

We cover the whole of Scotland and undertake contracts for a large variety of organisations and private individuals, these include the NHS, Highland Council, Historic Environment Scotland, Housing Associations, Schools, Private Companies, Coastguard Agency, Hotels and several large private estates. These are all sites that have to be maintained to a high standard as they are open to the visiting public.

Get in Touch


The Beginning
Over five decades ago the Company was started by the current Directors father Ronald Sleigh in the Bridge of Allan, initially using agricultural machinery. In 1966 we bought our first landscaping machinery and ventured into landscaping. In 1981 our Director Henry Sleigh joined his father and they expanded into Aberdeenshire and became a Limited company in 1984.
New Location
2000 We relocated to Croy, Inverness. We then employed teams of landscapers and grass cutters and a full time mechanic with a fully equipped workshop and also set up a full time office and started to expand our range of equipment and services.

Growing Quickly
Over the last few decades we have continued to grow as a business, and opened a second premises in Nairn, we have one of the largest collections of landscaping and grass cutting equipment in Scotland and now operate multiple teams throughout the whole of Scotland.

The Team

Henry Sleigh


Henry Sleigh has a BSc in Agriculture and over 40 years experience of the landscaping industry since joining the company with his father. He has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of the work that we undertake and has actively strived to keep progressing over the years. His knowledge has seen him adapt and make some of our landscaping machinery himself and he is always thinking of ways that we can improve our works.

Hazel Sleigh


Hazel makes sure things are running smoothly and is a great motivator. She often carries out unscheduled site visits to ensure that our teams are carrying out their site maintenance/landscaping tasks in accordance with the specification, method statements and to ensure that the sites are all up to the required standard.


Kevin Smith


Kevin is one of our most experienced landscapers, he carries out our ground preparation works, road works, drainage works, seeding, turfing, fertilising, moss control, planting, repairs, fencing, hedge cutting, any tree works and also spraying and grass cutting. He is also a very experienced groundsman. Kevin is able to advise on any ground related matters/conditions, ground preparation or weed control and is also licensed for pest control. He was a game keeper previously on a large estate and is therefore well versed with Countryside matters, preservation and regulations.


Craig Duncan and Artur Kotwica


Craig pictured on the left controls his own run of sites with Artur and they are based in the Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh areas.  Their particular area of expertise is with high profile sites that have large expanses of grass, where they carry out grass cutting, weed control, moss control, planting, fencing and any pruning that needs to be carried undertaken. They have been providing grounds maintenance services for Historic Environment Scotland consistently for over 10 years, along with some high profile hotels, large private estates, housing Associations and The Highland Council amongst many others.

Sleigh Landscapes


This is our core team, many of whom have been with us for a number of years, they all compliment each other and offer different skills, interests and knowledge to all the work that they undertake. We increase our numbers as required to ensure that we meet the needs of our contracts and schedules.  One of our team leaders Davie Gray, back left, has been with us for almost 27 years, since leaving school and has a wealth of knowledge to offer, gained over his many years in the landscaping industry.

Also pictured second on the left is our mechanic John Fraser, he has been with us for 16 years and maintains all of our equipment and vehicles and is able to attend onsite for breakdowns, repairs or exchanges of equipment, plant or vehicles.

Environment & Sustainability

We are committed to achieving sustainable development within the landscaping industry. When we design landscaping areas we recommend the use of planting that is native to that area, which wherever possible is accompanied by a certificate of local providence and sourced from our local supplier.
When possible we rebuild any existing stone walls using the fallen or buried stone or we source replacements from the surrounding area. This also applies to any fencing or tree staking repairs that we undertake, we choose to re-use and recycle as much as possible.

We relish the opportunity to depart from the idea that all grass cutting should be done to the same height preferring if agreed to increase the length as we progress away from the edge with a view to encouraging bio-diversity and wild flower meadows bringing positive benefit to wildlife.

We maintain any existing wooded areas on the sites that we cover as we believe that maintaining the larger trees is an important part of our heritage and these wooded areas are often a vital habitat and food source to the local wildlife. We strive to maintain and enhance biodiversity with semi natural woodland.
