Paysage Durable

Who Are We?Paysage Durable is the encompassing name of a group of independent small businesses, whom between them have the specialism in all sustainable and organic elements of the Landscaping and Horticultural industry. Combining the traditional techniques with modern innovative techniques and products.Why sustainable?Whilst the businesses within the Paysage Durable group have had many years experience in this field, there is now a major push from both client desire and also from Governmental policy, both by Country and through European Union policies to adopt sustainable techniques as the norm.Landscaping and Horticulture is lucky that it is by tradition a sustainable industry, that has lost only a proportion of these techniques in post WWII years, largely due to combining elements of both modern construction and modern agricultural methods into the garden industry. As financing for sustainable and organic products is now considerably greater than for the chemical market and with considerable research into new organic and sustainable techniques it is possible to design, create and manage a garden to a higher quality, which is sustainable and at equal cost, without any compromise to the clients desires.What is a sustainable garden?Using the best definition available for sustainable development, from the Brundtland Commission - "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." It is possible to determine that a sustainable garden is one where the current design and maintenance does not interfere with the lands ability for its optimal future production and neither harm the optimal biodiversity which is, (or could be) contained within itAt Paysage Durable we go a step further, there is a need for all the activities of those within the group to ensure every technique and method to create a garden is not to the detriment of surrounding people or property. The creation, (not just the realisation) of a garden needs to maximise the potential for environmental enhancement, it needs to use local and natural materials if possible, recycled if not, it needs to be ecologically friendly containing suitable habitats for all natural fauna. And not least, it needs to work for the present owner and future owners.www.paysagedurable.com

"A proper (pure Honda) will cost around 40% more but will give you 10 years + , steel deck and OHV engine not OHC.
Rare, expensive but you’ll be happy in 5 years time because it’ll still start, work and perform like the day you bought it "

"All looks very nice to me Dan, great mower too!  Just be careful though because it has been said in this discussion that a sign written van only 'gives the impression that you're professional'. Too many 'tradesmen' fall into that category:)"

"Metal hozelocks/gardena premium are good. Having enough female connectors so you never have to take them off of the hose is even better."
