As new members of the APL (Association of Professional Landscapers) we are taking full advantage of the training schemes they offer and have sent two of our most experienced team members, Mark and Glynne, off to Paving the Way – a one day APL Seminar. There was lots of useful information and some new exciting products launched, which we will be looking forward to using in our future projects.
It was hosted by Mark Gregory of Landform and sponsored by headline partner London Stone, and was formulated to deliver landscape contractors and designers an invaluable technical insight into a range of materials and techniques in hard landscaping.
The seminar covered many technical aspects of the paving including the importance of good practical design, choice of sub-base and bedding methods, the technicalities and current methods of laying, cutting in and an investigation of pointing, traditional v modern.
The day also looked at ethical sourcing, supply chain, size of market and a look at what to do when it goes wrong.
Speakers included Jason Lock (Deakinlock) Paul Hensey MSGD, Steven Whalley (Londonstone), David Sewell (Gardenmakers), Giles Heap (CED) Barry Hunt (IBIS), Martin Fear (Specialist Precast Products Ltd), James Lucas (sealant specialist) and of course Mark Gregory (Landform Consultants) to name a few.
The APL https://www.landscaper.org.uk/ has always had a reputation of promoting landscaping excellence and a commitment to education and knowledge transfer.
