New Garden Design Academy Facebook page

Amid huge excitement the Garden Design Academy has just launched its new Facebook page. We have taken the same approach to Facebook as we did with our web site. First sign up and put something on line; learn how it works and what we could do with it. In the light of this experience improve the site, and then improve it some more. The result is this Welcome page which can be found at http://www.facebook.com/GardenDesignAcademy

We believe it helps us to look much more professional and hope everyone will “like” it enough to visit the Academy web site. Comments to help us improve it further will be appreciated; our son, a qualified web site wizard, has already made a few suggestions which we have incorporated in this version. My wife corrected my spelling!

Observant readers will note that to celebrate the new page we have launched a new feature: Offer of the Month, an opportunity to give lots of money away and promote some of our latest courses. I believe “Managing Notable Gardens” is going to be very popular with the parks and recreation industry so this offer should please a few people.

I would be interested to hear what other Landscape Juice members are doing on Facebook.

I can highly recommend the Bessertrim strimmers. They are ridiculously cheap. I would think that they are at least as good as a Stihl strimmer costing four times the price of the Bessertrim. I think the price is low because they come as a kit, alt…"

Bessertrim brushcutters

Hi all.Our echo brush cutter after 7 years of abuse is now beyond economical repair. I was going to plump for the exact same new model, but knowing parts can be pricey I've vaguely thought about purchasing a different brand. My newest employee…
