Acting on your feedback

Last issue, I thanked all the Registered Master Landscaper members who completed our survey – and this issue, I have some news to share regarding the outcome of it!

Firstly, congratulations to Weka Landscapes in Central Otago, which won the prize draw of a $1,000 Husqvarna voucher for completing the survey. 

The Board considered all survey responses ahead of our strategic meeting in February, with outcomes presented at the round of meet-ups held later in the month. The news is that the Board has reacted to the survey results and delayed the Landscapes of Distinction competition to 2025, to allow more time to simplify the entry process and shift the timing of judges' visits to view gardens when they are at their best. 

We are still going ahead with our Young Landscaper of the Year competition later in 2024. No firm dates have yet been agreed, and rest assured that we will provide plenty of notice to get everything in place. Details will be communicated directly to our members in the near future.

These meet-ups provide great networking opportunities for our members. We encourage all landscapers to attend these social events, which are also open to non-members, who want to get a taster of what's on offer.

Turn to page 28 to read what William Shaw – founder of Barrow & Stone in Tauranga – has to say about the benefits of being an RML member, as well as his passion for natural stone. 

As always, we hope you find this issue of NZ Landscaper Magazine useful and look forward to seeing you at our next meet-up!
