With a focus on sustainable and ethical landscaping the seminar will provide an opportunity for landscapers to get together to share ideas and consider how best to minimise the impact of landscaping on the environment.
There will be a number of well-known speakers at the event, who will cover a wide range of topics throughout the day. Amongst the speakers will be Matthew Rolph from SCP Environmental Ltd, working together with Graf GbH, who will highlight the benefits of rainwater harvesting along with describing the installation processes of both underground and aboveground rainwater harvesting solutions. There will also be a presentation from Armando Raish from Treebox who will explain how landscapers can meet the urban greening challenge without breaking the bank along with describing the many benefits that green walls can provide. Andy Spetch from British Sugar will also highlight the ways in which their investment in leading technology in energy efficiency, gas and water treatment has enabled the company to continuously improve their use of raw materials and explore new and exciting product streams.
APL Director of Business Development Tim Briercliffe commented “The whole area of resource use and sustainability is critical for landscapers to address. This year’s drought has highlighted that more than ever and this seminar provides the perfect opportunity to review products and options to meet customer needs. On top of that it’s a great time for meeting others in the trade.”
During the seminar, Greenline Plants will also be offering a guided tour of their site as well as a delicious hog roast buffet for all delegates to enjoy after the event.
