What do you consider the main issues affecting the fencing and landscaping industry?
Apart from the current timber shortage… It would be the struggle to bring landowners up to speed on how a modern agricultural fence should be erected. Also there needs to be more of a push from contractors to bring the standard up. There is a healthy group of contractors who are/ have been pushing the standard up for a number of years. We aspire to be like these guys.
