Every garden has the potential to bring incredible joy and to improve and evolve, but starting with the right products and expertise is key to ensuring continued success year on year.
These are the words of Emma Austin, an experienced Garden Designer from Hatfield, who launched Emma Austin Garden Designs over 19 years ago and is still every bit as passionate about her work as she was back then.
Emma said: “As a garden designer and horticulturalist, there’s a lot I know about creating the perfect conditions for plants, lawns and trees to thrive, and how temperature, light and shade can have an impact. There’s also a lot you don’t get taught however, which is why working with knowledgeable and experienced suppliers is key.”
Emma started working with George Davies Turf around 10 years ago when they supplied turf for some of her first garden design projects. Since then, she has used GDT as a key supplier for a range of hard and soft residential landscaping projects requiring a wide range of materials including top soil, soil improver, seed mix and turf.
Emma relies on George Davies Turf for many of her product needs.
“Their soil is fantastic for turf as it’s extremely high quality so it gives you a great outcome that lasts. For a business like mine which is built on reputation and referral, this is absolutely vital. I know that when I use George Davies products I’m delivering a professional and reliable result which won’t need repeating.
“The other thing I love about working with GDT is that you can call them anytime for advice and support and they are always happy to help, always enthusiastic and absolutely nothing is ever a problem. They’re incredibly amenable and knowledgeable, and are happy to give you advice for free as they are passionate about ensuring every job is done properly – this kind of relationship is priceless.
“Being based in Hatfield I use their St Albans depot for collection which is really handy as I can order ahead and they have everything ready for when I arrive. They are also able to deliver to me or directly to site which can save a lot of time and money as they use a forklift truck alongside their delivery lorry enabling much better accessibility – in some cases this can save a whole day’s labour.”
“I’ve made a lot of great contacts through GDT and as a result I have access to a wide range of experts that I can call in on more complex jobs. GDT’s honesty and integrity make them a great supplier and I have no doubt we will continue working together for a long time.”
