From Small Acorns: Panoramic Continues To Grow
As we enter 2022 we continue to expand thanks to the support of our customers, both long-standing and new. Indeed, we currently have a strong order book, in excess of £2 Million, although there is room for more!
In recent months we have recruited further site crews and additional site supervisors, plus we have strengthened our internal support team to ensure we carry on meeting and exceeding customer expectations.
COVID-19 and the various lockdowns have not stopped or slowed us. We have taken all relevant precautions on-site and, where possible, our office-based staff have worked from home. As a result, the site teams have not missed a day.
Thanks to the hard work of our teams, impressing clients and receiving top-quality references, sales have continued to flow. Existing clients are awarding us repeat orders (thank you) and additional new relationships continue to be formed. We are now working with over 60 different contractors.
We are heading to a real major milestone in our turnover since the business launched just 30 months ago. We will be announcing this soon.
Happy New Year – Best Wishes for 2022.
Christmas Jumpers for Charity
As a bit of festive fun, the members of the Panoramic team at Hastings were invited to come into the office dressed in their favourite Christmas jumper. The photo shows what a variety of designs there was and everyone starting to get into the festive spirit. A small donation was made by each member of the team towards a cancer charity.
Just a reminder that we finish for Christmas at the close of play tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd December and that we will be back in the office ready to start serving all our customers again on Tuesday 4th January.
Best Wishes to everyone and Seasons’ Greetings from all of us at Panoramic.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Panoramic Landscape Contractors.
Our offices will be closed for the Christmas Holidays from the 22nd of December until the 4th of January 2022.
As we continue to grow, we are delighted to welcome a number of new customers who have recently placed their first projects with Panoramic. It’s great that they have entrusted us with their soft landscaping work.

Improved Representation of Who We Are and What We Do
Panoramic has evolved a great deal since our launch just a few years ago and grown significantly since then. We have now taken the opportunity to re-landscape our website and make it much more appropriate to the services we now offer.
Panoramic now wholly specialise in soft landscaping for new build and refurbishment construction projects. Our updated website completely reflects this with a focus on our main services including turfing, seeding, planting and tree installations.
The new site gives you more background about Panoramic and who we are. It also includes details of our standard 12-month ongoing maintenance contracts, that we provide following the completion of most projects.
Please take a look and see how we have re-laid and planted our new website.
We Only Cut Turf Not Corners
When bringing your landscape project to fruition, we always complete the installation to your specification. We will not cut corners by using lower specification materials and will only use the best trees and plants.
Our intention with any project is that the grass, trees and plants will thrive. Indeed, that is why we offer on almost every installation a 12-month maintenance period to ensure that the planting not only survives but also Becomes established for the long term.
We not only stick to the spec but we also use quality topsoil and turf, plants and trees from reputable growers to ensure that the green areas surrounding your building or development meet the clients’ and architects’/ specifiers’ expectations.
Taking care to prepare the ground and provide the quality of the soil and strong basis for turf, grass seed, plants and trees to survive is paramount. There are significant benefits to quality landscaping in a development, especially in urban areas, and we both respect and encourage this.
We will only make changes to the specification when requested by the client or their representatives, or sometimes suggested by ourselves, always again to benefit the overall effect.
For soft landscaping that stays on spec and fulfils your expectations, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Newly Appointed Contracts Manager
We are delighted to introduce the newest member of the Panoramic Landscape team, Michal Kurek. Michal has joined us as a Contracts Manager and will form part of our operational management team.
Michal has worked with individuals within the Panoramic cohort previously and therefore it is to the delight of many that he is now part of the team. He brings to the table years of knowledge with extensive hands-on soft landscaping and horticulture experience.
We have decided to bring Michal into the company to help assist with existing operations. We have continued to grow extensively and so to ensure we provide the same high-quality level of service our clients have come to expect, we must also grow within.
The past three months has seen Panoramic secure large volumes of work which has further propelled the company’s growth and so we welcome Michal to help manage the additional contracts.
We are delighted to be promoting one of our operatives to the post of Trainee Foreman. It’s nice to be providing opportunities to our team members as we grow.
Introducing Eri, the newest member of our supervisory team. Eri has proven his commitment to delivering quality and shown strengths in organisation and leadership working as an operative. Due to his ongoing dedication to providing a high quality of work to our clients, we are pleased to promote him to the post of Trainee Foreman.
Congratulations Eri and we look forward to the works you and your team will produce.
Annual Supervisor / Foreman Conference
This week, we held an important team meeting at the Marriott Hotel in Kensington, London. It was the perfect chance for us to get together as one unit and share the complete company journey from start to finish.
We are a growing team and not everyone in the office were completely aware of what the supervisor/foreman do and vice versa. This communication meeting allowed us to showcase the roles of the various teams. Also, the steps involved in securing a job, ordering materials, etc, before anyone arrives on-site and begins work.
We spent the rest of our time together discussing health and safety, RAMS (Risk Assessment Method Statement) and compliance, as well as the company image that we want to portray and how we can continue to uphold the excellent service we provide. A highly productive meeting all round.
Phillip Hilbeck, Founder and Director of Panoramic thanked the team for their continued hard work over the past 18 months. Their combined efforts in helping to grow the company and make it a success.
A number of our site foremen have recently completed comprehensive first aid training. Congratulations to all for passing the course and receiving their certificates.
