We offer a package where we sit down with sales managers and directors with our landscaping architect team and take into consideration the garden theme, the budget, and the time-scale. We then work on the brief to offer a CAD drawing showing all types of hardscaping products and types we are using and detailed shrub, perennial, and tree types.
We do this to ensure that when the Showhome opens, everyone is happy with the result and it reduces the “ oh I don’t like that “ or “ I wish we had a water feature” etc.
We carry out all of this in-house, thus reducing waiting for an independent company to come up with a scheme then picking flies which can result in communication breakdown and displeasure with the end result.
House building / plot landscaping
At Sitescapes, at tender stage, we encourage the housebuilder to have faith in us to landscape the plot at the end of the plot build. Over the years it has become very frustrating to turn up and plots not to be ready or having to work around other trades.
We make a promise that we will turn up and landscape the plot when required thus reducing having to return and re-landscape or carry out remedial works.
By having faith in us with this approach the changes are notable, with the complete aesthetics of the site changed for the better – with plots looking fresh when the customer arrives to move in. In addition, we have noticed a considerable drop in customer care jobs having to be done with contractors carrying out work after we have completed. For example, tarmac workers, painters, ground workers, who all show no respect for the previous contractors and the plots can lose their general aesthetics.
Our approach of soft landscaping at the very end of a plot build has been tried out on a few sites, with one site at Stafford winning the national NHBC award and more recently a site in Lichfield getting into a top 5 position.
After facing redundancy, Managing Director John Dalton creates Sitescapes to provide Landscaping Services to Housebuilders.
