On Friday the Landscape Juice Network welcomed its 7,000th member, bringing together people from all corners of the landscaping industry.
From day one of the site's creation, the network has worked to bring information and advice to small and medium sized landscaping practitioners, without having to have the 'right' connections.
Of course our network isn't just about landscaping, it's also draws on the experience of those in the hard landscaping sector, as well as garden designers, lawn care professionals and a variety of suppliers aligned with our industry.
And whilst membership numbers are a helpful measure, they are not the only measure.
The detailed advice on many industry matters from fellow landscapers is impossible to quantify, but when that advice extends to providing support during tough times that's when the value we all provide to the network comes to the fore.
