Mark Dewick – Landmark
Landmark The Quality Landscape Company
In business terms, do you expect 2013 to be better than 2012?
Yes, there are signs that confidence is returning to the industry and the recession and difficult weather conditions have weeded out a lot of the competition.
What is your most important piece of machinery/equipment?
The angle grinder/still saw. The amount of paving and concrete we have to cut is phenomenal.
What is the busiest time of year for you?
From the 1st March to middle of June.
What do you think the trends/changes will be in 2013?
Artificial turf may be the thing as prices have fallen and the quality has improved.
How do you find new clients?
Word of mouth is king but a great website backed up with a great portfolio works for us.
Describe yourself in three words.
Lover of life.
What are your unfulfilled career ambitions?
I have always wanted to do a Hampton Court show garden and present a garden makeover show on TV.
Best book you’ve ever read?
As a kid I loved the Secret Seven books. Your imagination runs riot when you’re that age.
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I lived in India when I was three years old.
First album you ever bought?
