Landscaping Company £1M – £5M Turnover
A couple of weeks ago we announced that we had been shortlisted for the 2022 Pro Landscape Business Awards. We are thankful to be in the running for this award and are all very much looking forward to the event. We wanted to share some more information about the awards and the categories that will be decided on during the day.
The Pro Landscape Business Awards focus on how well companies run their business. Sustainability, corporate social responsibility, profitability, commitment to the landscaping sector, and client/supplier relationships are all areas reviewed as part of identifying the shortlist and overall winners.
There are a total of fifteen categories ranging from ‘Garden Design Company’ to ‘Industry Collaboration’ and from ‘Supplier and Service Provider’ to ‘Sustainable Company of the Year’. Panoramic Landscapes has been nominated in the ‘Landscaping Company £1M-£5M Turnover’ category. This category was created to celebrate the business achievements of medium sizes businesses. Judges will be looking for examples of consistent brief fulfilment, relationships within the industry, staff morale and prospective development opportunities.

Six New Vans Join the Panoramic Fleet
We have recently added six brand new Ford Transit vans to our fleet, all liveried in the Panoramic Landscapes style. These will keep us mobile, getting to and from all our projects.
An interesting fact is that the Ford Transit, which we have selected, is actually Britain’s best selling vehicle. It outsold the Vauxhall Corsa, Britain’s bestselling car in 2021, with a total of 99,185 registered in all variants.
Three of the new vans replace previous vehicles, each of which had racked up over 150,000 miles service. Meanwhile, the other three are additional to our fleet and will help us to continue our growth.
Let us drive your next soft landscaping project. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

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.
