What do you consider the main issues affecting the fencing and landscaping industry? Volatile raw material prices and those willing to compromise quality and standards by cutting corners to win business.

What’s been your best idea? Deciding from a young age that I was going to be a strong independent person.

And you’re worst? Agreeing to be tuck shop Mum for two football teams….on the plus side though, the garage is always full of sweets!

What do you like about Fencing and Landscaping News? The variety of fencing trades covered, it’s a good all round publication showing the issues, successes and innovations of the UK fencing market which is good to read about.
