Buy Smarter To Avoid The Rising Costs Of Landscaping Materials

15/11/2022 - Case Studies and Inspiration

We've been warned that some of our suppliers will be increasing their prices early in 2023. It's not really a surprise given the economic climate. However, its disappointing and Richard has been working hard to negotiate deals that will keep costs as low as possible.  

No landscaper or garden designer wants to approach their customers with the news that the price of their garden has gone up due to a rise in materials costs. Likewise, no business can comfortably absorb the extra costs. And so, where projects have been agreed but not started, it’s helpful if you can find cost effective alternatives. That's where the Arbour Landscape Solutions team can help.  

  • enlightenedTalk to us about your concerns - we'll do our best to help you find products that fit your budget.
  • enlightenedReserve stocks of your chosen products NOW - before prices rise.
  • enlightenedIf necessary, ask customers for payment in advance to allow you to buy their landscaping materials at todays prices. 
  • enlightenedTake advantage of our Order Now Pay Later Scheme. Reserve your landscaping materials today, pay in 30 days time (subject to T's and C's).

How Buying From Arbour Landscape Solutions Can Delay Price Rises

Not even Richard Bickler can stave off industry price rises in the long term, but, ever-resourceful, he has an idea to help you to delay the pain.  

To help landscapers and garden designers cope with those additional costs - particularly for projects where quotes have been accepted but the work is still in progress, we’re buying extra stocks of selected products at todays prices. That means that while stocks last, we can offer those products to landscapers and garden designers at the prices you see on the website today. Naturally this will be on a first come first served basis. 

Judging by order volumes in the last fortnight or so, we're expecting stocks to be depleted quite fast - so if you want to take advantage of the situation....act now!
