A bit about

Our History

From humble beginnings, Shropshire Vertidrain was founded by Mike Humphries in 2016 when Mike took early retirement from his role in the engineering sector. Over the years, Mike has grown Shropshire Vertidrain from a small sole trader ship to a fully limited company in 2022 when fellow engineer Paul Beer joined the company.

With Mike and Paul's passion, Shropshire Vertidrain has been growing even further whilst continuing to impress, support and delight clients with tailored vertidraining and turf care regimes.

Why we do

what we do

We believe that the outdoors should be celebrated and by providing outstanding services to our clients, we hope to bring people together to play, socialise and embrace the outdoors.

Shropshire Vertidrain was founded on the idea that greens could be greener, grass could be thicker and that we as people should use and treat these green spaces with love and respect.
Countless times have we seen fields and courses neglected or mismanaged discouraging people from enjoying the space. we do what we do not only because we love the outdoors but we want others to enjoy them as much as we do.
