“I am aware that your catering and estate lands are 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 a different 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.”
