The need to create an attractive surrounding in addition to an eye catching building is becoming more widespread, with businesses realising that landscaping can have a major impact on how a potential buyer will view a property.
Precast concrete paving combined with surface water management are factors now being considered by architects during the initial planning process, with the investment in specifying quality materials and features such as sustainable drainage becoming more crucial before construction has begun.
According to Andrew Gill, architects and engineers are now beginning to realise that when a building is designed to stand out from the crowd,’ organisations are expecting the same from the surrounding environment, with schools, railway stations, health centres and even ports specifying first-class landscaping.
Following the growth of the Brett Landscaping commercial division, the company has expanded its range with traditional block or natural stone paving, specialist kerbs, surface water management and bespoke features to ensure that industry professionals can specify high quality landscaping products that are designed to last.
