We are delighted to expand our international brand to the Southern US, with veteran landscaper Angelique Robb and editor Laura Lee at the helm. Pro Landscaper was established in the UK in 2011, expanded to the Middle East in 2013, and then to South Africa in 2015. No matter where we are in the world, our goal is the same: bring the whole of the landscaping sector together, to inform, educate, share, and inspire.
We believe landscaping holds the key to a better quality of life for all, from combatting climate change to improving the health and wellbeing of mankind.
In the near future, we’ll be launching a printed trade publication and hosting our inaugural FutureScape event in the US. We’re looking forward to meeting the landscapers, garden designers, landscape architects and suppliers across the South. If you have any newsworthy stories, are launching any new products, or would like to receive a free subscription, please contact us. We would love to hear from you!
