A serious matter:

Working with landscapers should be a two way relationship of trust.

Over the last three years the landscape industry has been under pressure.

This does not need to result in a drop in professional standards.

There is no need for the landscaper or  the garden designer to feel “threatened”.

I have now had three incidents where the landscaper I have sent to the client has misused the trust

and made efforts to take the client as his own.

This is NOT the way forward for our industry.

Much more care should be taken by landscapers to realise that being introduced to a client by a

garden designer presupposes that he will act in an ethical manner.

Let there be a return to professional standards so that we can get on with our job without having to

look over our shoulders at what the landscapers are doing!
