Our December issue marked the end of a difficult and challenging year, not just for us at Pro Landscaper but also for those who read our magazine and contribute to it. Over the last 12 months, we have heard stories of struggle, but we have also heard from companies and individuals who have overcome adversity and adapted to a changed world.
We have thankfully continued to see new projects announced too, or existing ones continue, such as the Urban Nature Project at the Natural History Museum in London, which features as our Future Project this month.
We also hear from Martin Shaw of Walmsley Shaw, who explains how the company has progressed over the last few decades, from himself as a sole trader to a recognised landscaping company in the South West, working on half-a-million-pound projects.
With gardens now open to visitors again as the second lockdown ends, the team at The Beth Chatto Gardens explain how they continue to embrace Beth’s ethos and her work of ‘right plant, right place’ within the gardens.
2020 has show how the industry can come together and thrive, from those working on domestic and commercial projects to those running and maintaining the green spaces which have become havens to the public this year, and we look forward to highlight this over the coming months too.
