This month I have two golden nuggets of industry knowledge for you.

“Firstly, school will be out for everyone in the next few weeks so be sure to have extra covers in place to satisfy all your family visitors. There is nothing more annoying for a customer than not being able to sit and enjoy a drink and bite to eat when they want to.

Secondly, I am aware that outdoor zones are very often managed by a different department and staff members. So it is a nice idea to network with each other to make sure you are all getting the most out of your outdoor furniture. For example, if you are a catering manager looking at replacing your dining furniture for a newer range, it is worth contacting your estate’s team to see if your retired furniture range can be utilised and enjoyed in another area of your property. This is a great way to recycle furniture and accessories to different a new space”

For a complimentary appraisal of your outdoor space and to ensure you are maximising it to its full potential, give me a call and I will happily help you by telephone or a site visit.
