The April edition of Pro Landscaper is as varied and all-encompassing as ever, from making a success of a family-run business to the art of landscaping uniforms.
A personal highlight, alongside captivating chats with HG Landscapes’ Jeremy Howgrave-Graham and Majestic Trees’ Eliot Barden, was a compendium of insights into the origins of the Parks Trust in Milton Keynes. How the latter remains a UK anomaly is as confusing as it is surprising; could other cities, towns and villages follow suit?
Also in this issue:
- What does it take to run a successful family-owned company, and what are the disadvantages? We found out from some of the UK’s most outstanding family-run landscaping firms.
- What’s in a uniform? For some, it’s an essential part of the company’s branding and a key tool for helping to build a reputation. For others, it’s simply essential and, as long as it keeps staff safe and enables them to carry out their work, the look and style is not quite so important.
