October 19th 2016

Ben Barnard approached Five Lamps in March 2016, to help support expansion of his business ‘Mossy Rock Limited’, which was set up in the current format in November 2015.

Mossy Rock offers a wide variety of Garden Maintenance packages, including Organic maintenance, Estate Garden care, plus installation & maintenance of external and internal garden spaces. Hard landscaping including design/installation of water features, patios, walls, fencing, laying of lawns and soft landscaping is also available.
Ben’s business is based in Thirsk and principally covers Teesside and North Yorkshire.

Ben produced a high quality Business Plan, and Five Lamps were able to agree a Start Up loan towards the purchase of additional equipment including a Flat- bed van; Ben also recruited an additional full time employee.

Five Lamps Enterprise Loan Officer Vince Rogers said,

“Ben’s enthusiasm for the business was apparent from the outset and because he was able to provide a strong Plan and responded quickly to any request for additional information we were able to obtain approval within a short timescale.”

Ben said of the Five Lamps service;

“The support received has transformed my business from a ‘one man band’ to a professional outfit able to take a wider variety of work.”
