With gardens becoming smaller, neighbours closer and roads busier, we all suffer from different forms of noise pollution. But, as Andy Taylor reports, Forest have now come up with a new kind of fencing that minimizes this nuisance.
GardenSite partner, David Coton, is pleased to announce that Leanne Arrowsmith from Kelkay is the latest recipient of our Excellent Customer Service Award.
GardenSite always emphasize the value of customer service, it's certainly something that we always strive for, and Leanne's professional attitude is a fine example to follow.
Kelkay are one of the UK's major suppliers of a huge range of decorative aggregates and stone products from patio kits to water features.
Leanne works in their sales department and we rely on her to ensure that orders are fulfilled and any problems that may occur are resolved efficiently.
It has always been a pleasure to deal with the Kelkay sales team and the reason for this award is that we have recently been indebted to Leanne in particular.
Customer queries are an inevitable part of any business need to be sorted out quickly and to everyone's satisfaction.
This is when someone as helpful and knowledgeable as Leanne becomes invaluable, dealing with and sorting out the issue immediately and in a friendly manner.
Antony Harker, Kelkay's Managing Director, acknowledged Leanne's award by saying that 'It's great to hear when an individual has exceeded someone's expectations'
Our award is a well earned appreciation of Leanne's positive approach, skills and enthusiasm which benefit both Kelkay, GardenSite and all our customers.
David Coton was recently invited to the exclusive launch of Grange's new products for 2018, the result of significant investment that the garden structures and fencing firm have received from their Polish parent company.
David Coton suggests that there are plenty of gardening jobs that need to be done in November, from why you shouldn't throw away your fallen leaves to how to take care of your vegetable patch.
In October, David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that you should also now be planning ahead for next year.
At GLEE this year David Coton visited the VegTrug stand to find out how their specially designed space saving planters can encourage us to grow more of our own food without the use of pesticides.
